The Hearts striker has received backing from the former Hibs player.

John McGinn expressed that the Scotland team feels humiliated following their 4-0 loss to the Netherlands.

The Scotland squad faced a grim outcome with three goals scored in the last 20 minutes by Gini Wijnaldum, Wout Weghorst, and Donyell Malen, compounding their struggles after conceding an impressive opener from Tijjani Reijnders. This defeat serves as a harsh lesson about the consequences of not maintaining top performance throughout the full 90 minutes, especially with Euro 2024 approaching.

Both Hearts’ main man Lawrence Shankland and Hibs hero Ryan Christie missed excellent chances throughout the match, and Hibs captain and Aston Villa captain McGinn came out in favor of the striker in his candid assessment. “Overall, we will look back on it with so much to take from the game,” he said to Viaplay. We feel embarrassed by the scoreline.

“Since we are all seasoned athletes, it should come as no surprise that we are participating in European football when we travel to locations like this. One of your good spells—mine, Christie’s, Shanks’—must be used throughout the game.

“After that, you can say that you played well, that you had chances, and all that, but we need to be more realistic and, when the score is 2-0, close down a little, be less ambitious, and be more focused.
