'Not good enough', 'Love us to sign him' - Celtic fans split over swoop for 5ft 8 midfield ace

Celtic fans on social media seem split over the prospect of the Hoops signing Hibernian’s John McGinn.

The Scottish Sun reports that the Bhoys have included the 5ft 8in midfielder on a shortlist of potential signings, with Scott Allan set to be included as part of the deal.

The 23-year-old, whose contract runs out at the end of next season, has had an excellent season for Neil Lennon’s side, helping them finish fourth in the Scottish Premiership table.

He scored six goals and provided eight assists and was one of the four players nominated as Scotland player of the year, which was won by Scott Brown.

Despite that, it seems that some fans aren’t convinced about the merits of the Scottish international, with one claiming that he  is ‘not good enough’ to play for the Hoops.

On the other hand, another supporter is delighted that the Bhoys may be preparing to bid for McGinn, claiming that they would ‘love us to sign him’.
