His brother at Aston Villa, John McGinn, was left in shock – and Paul McGinn admits his own double caught him off-guard.
The right-back has scored only a handful of goals in his career but scored two on Tuesday as Hibs drew with St Johnstone 2-2. It lead to a few texts from clos ally’s and his Aston Villa relative.

Hibs’ full-back says it was nice to hear some positive messages: “I scored three for St Mirren before coming to Hibs but before that I was probably averaging about a goal a season! So, that was a good start to my Hibs tally.
“Honestly, I was sneaking in at the back post right at the end thinking ‘I’m on a hat-trick and this is coming across’ – I was getting a bit excited. And, I’d have fancied myself to finish it.
