NEIL LENNON has come out in defence of his midfield star John McGinn after Brendan Rodgers branded the player ‘Not on Scott Brown’s level’ after the 2-2 draw on Sunday.
John, who has been a fantastic player for Hibernian and especially under Neil Lennon has been tipped for big things in the game and while Neil Lennon respects Rodgers opinion that didn’t stop him from sticking up for McGinn.
“I totally disagree with that,” Lennon said. “McGinn was superb, physically, his football was good.
“I don’t remember Broony dominating the game and in the last 20 minutes, John got stronger when we put him back in his natural position. He was magnificent.
“Maybe Brendan sees it differently from me. I thought McGinn was a cut above.”
