Celtic fans pile in to slate Aston Villa’s John McGinn

Transfer sagas over the summer always tend to boil down fairly quickly once the footballing season kicks in. Indeed, while the mid-year break tends to throw up all kinds of them, once fans can settle in and watch their teams play on a regular basis, they are often forgotten. 

Well, at least some of them.

The saga which saw former Hibernian midfielder John McGinn move to Aston Villa still riles an awful lot of Celtic fans, it seems. With the Scotland international ultimately opting to join the Villains instead of the club he supported as a boy, an awful lot of Hoops on Twitter were slating the midfield man for his performance during Scotland’s UEFA Nations League clash away in Israel.

McGinn, who recently hit headlines for his stunning goal against Sheffield Wednesday, was berated for his constant loss of possession as Alex McLeish’s side let a one goal lead slip, losing 2-1 to their hosts.

With that in mind, here’s a closer look at what Celtic fans had to say.
