CHRIS SUTTON has taken a huge dig at Peter Lawwell this afternoon as the Englishman watches John McGinn help propel Aston Villa back into the Premier League.
As it stands, Aston Villa are heading back to the big time and John McGinn is a big reason why. The player signed for the Birmingham club back at the end of the summer window when Villa swooped for the player when Celtic were playing hard ball with Hibs.
It’s well documented Brendan Rodgers had John as one of his top targets and Peter Lawwell was tasked with signing him from Hibernian. The Celtic chief executive failed to match Hibs asking fee and by the time they did it was too late.
Peter Lawwell’s job was to bring in a Celtic fan from Hibernian who had just one year left on his contract and managed to botch it.
Wouldn’t have wanted to miss out on signing John McGinn… outstanding season
