John McGinn mocked by Yeovil Town on Twitter after interview

Yeovil Town have mocked John McGinn on Twitter over Scotland missing out on going to the World Cup after the Aston Villa star joked about playing for the Glovers.

McGinn made a bright start to the international break, helping Steve Clarke’s men to an emphatic 3-0 win over Ukraine in the Nations League.

It was the Villa midfielder who scored the opening goal. And it was noted that he used his strength to shrug off the defender before firing into the bottom corner.

McGinn has developed a reputation for having a bizarre amount of strength when it comes to backing into players. And that prompted an interviewer to ask about the power of his glutes, shall we say.

McGinn took the question in good grace. And he joked that were it not for his backside, he would now be playing for Yeovil Town.

Unsurprisingly, the National League side were not best pleased with the claim. And they responded with a superb comment, suggesting that he is welcome to visit in late November or December.

Obviously, many players will be unavailable at that time due to the World Cup in Qatar. But Scotland’s squad will, unfortunately, be around after missing out on reaching the tournament at the play-off stage…

Once again, McGinn took the comment well, applauding Yeovil on their response…

Fair play to anyone who predicted the start of any kind of beef between McGinn and Yeovil. It will be very interesting to see whether the midfielder takes the club up on their offer to visit later on in the year.

However, it is probably more likely that McGinn will spend the winter making sure that he is in the best place ahead of the season’s resumption with Aston Villa.
