Some fans have reacted to the pair being reunited by Roy Hodgson.

McArthur and McCarthy are a great advert for Hamilton

They seem to follow each other at every turn. It’s quite incredible that McArthur and McCarthy have been put together again.

What makes it even more unbelievable is that this is the third separate club they’ve been at together.

First of all they controlled the Accies midfield together. Hamilton may not have a midfield duo of that calibre again, as the two midfielders were top class for the South Lanarkshire side. They made a combined 246 Accies appearances.

Their greatest achievement together was at their next club, Wigan. The two Accies academy graduates helped the Latics to a shock FA Cup win over Manchester City.

It’s a great advert for Hamilton that the two are still playing together. They’ve operated at an elite level for years now and Accies gave them the springboard to reach the heights they’re at currently.

The pair are role models for developing Accies youngsters due to their success in the English Premier League.

McArthur and McCarthy are back together. Crystal Palace may have earned a few extra fans from Hamilton with this signing.
