Aston Villa

McGinn signed a four-year contract with Aston Villa on 8 August 2018 despite interest from Celtic. He made his debut for Villa in a 3–2 win against Wigan Athletic on 11 August, during which he provided an assist for the opening goal and his inswinging corner forced an own goal in the second half. McGinn scored his first goal in English football on 22 September, a swerving 25-yard volley in a 2–1 home defeat against Sheffield Wednesday which was later named EFL Championship goal of the season.

Despite consistent performances at his new club, which saw McGinn quickly become a new fan favorite, Villa began the season poorly, which eventually led to the sacking of Steve Bruce as manager of the club in October 2018. Brentford manager Dean Smith was appointed as the new manager, and McGinn continued to be a key player in the Villa starting 11 for the new manager. The midfielder picked up his first goal under the new manager in a 3–0 win against Derby County and then picked up his first brace for the club in a 3–1 win over Nottingham Forest in March 2019. McGinn’s good form continued, scoring goals against Middlesbrough and Sheffield Wednesday as Villa’s form picked up heading into the final stages of the season. After picking up the club’s Players’ Player of the Season and Supporters’ Player of the Season awards, McGinn scored the winner in the Championship Playoff Final to promote Aston Villa to the Premier League after 3 years in the Championship.

On 8 August 2019, McGinn signed a five-year contract with the club. He scored the first goal of Aston Villa’s return to the Premier League in the first game of the season, in a 3–1 away defeat to Tottenham Hotspur on 10 August 2019. On 21 December 2019, McGinn suffered a fractured ankle in a 3–1 home defeat to Southampton and was expected to be out for up to three months. The break in the season caused by the COVID-19 pandemic meant that McGinn returned later in the same season, and he featured in all of Villa’s remaining games as they achieved Premier League survival.

On 11 December 2020, McGinn signed a new five-year contract, which sees him extend his stay at Villa Park until 2025. Following the departure of club captain Jack Grealish, McGinn was announced as the new vice-captain on 14 August 2021. He scored in Villa’s league opener, a 3–2 defeat against Watford.

On 27 July 2022, ahead of the new season, Aston Villa manager Steven Gerrard named McGinn as the new captain, with Emiliano Martínez replacing him as vice-captain.

He signed a new four-year contract with Villa in June 2023. He scored in the second game of the season during a 5-0 win over Everton F.C.

International career

McGinn received an international call-up when he was selected as part of a Scotland under-19 squad for a training camp in Turkey in January 2013. He later went on to make his international debut for the under-19 side against the Netherlands in a 2–1 defeat. McGinn then captained the under-19s against Serbia in Stara Pazova. On 5 March 2014, he made his debut for the Scotland under-21 side in a 2–2 draw against Hungary at Tannadice. McGinn later captained the under-21 team.

McGinn received his first call-up to the senior Scotland squad in March 2016, for a friendly against Denmark. McGinn played for the whole of the 1–0 win and was awarded man of the match.

McGinn scored his first goal for Scotland in September 2019, during a Euro 2020 qualification match with Russia. McGinn scored the first hat-trick in his career in a Euro 2020 qualifier against San Marino on 13 October 2019, with all his goals coming in the first half. Two goals against Kazakhstan meant that McGinn finished with a total of 7 goals in the Euro 2020 qualifying group.

With regular captain Andrew Robertson suspended, McGinn captained Scotland during a 1–0 win against the Czech Republic on 14 October 2020.

McGinn scored three goals for Scotland in March 2021 during the 2022 FIFA World Cup qualification matches a bicycle kick in a 2–2 draw against Austria and two in a 4–0 win against the Faroe Islands. In September of that year, he played the whole match in Vienna as Scotland defeated Austria 1–0; his brother Paul was introduced as a substitute in the second half, and they became only the third siblings to play together for the national team since the end of World War II.

McGinn won his 50th cap for Scotland on 24 September 2022, in a 2–1 win against the Republic of Ireland. During that same international period, he again captained the team, as Andrew Robertson was absent due to injury. McGinn wore the armband in the 0-0 UEFA Nations League draw with Ukraine, a result that secured first place in the group, promotion to the top level of the Nations League, and a guaranteed play-off appearance in qualifying for UEFA Euro 2024.
