McGinn seemed to get his studs caught in the turf and looked in severe pain. It’s now confirmed that a spell on the sidelines awaits the Scotsman.

With such a serious injury, it’s a blow for club and country. Villa for instance will miss one of their key stars for months as they become embroiled in a battle at the bottom of the Premier League. They currently sit 18th with three wins from 18 this term.

For Scotland, the possibility of missing their current talisman for crucial Euro 2020 play-offs in March is very real now. McGinn’s scored six in his last three games for Steve Clarke’s side.

It’s news that nobody wanted to hear and some fans have reacted to Aston Villa man McGinn being struck down with injury. Hopefully the recovery process is quick and smooth.
