Scotland right-back Stephen O'Donnell revealed he was advised on how to wind up England star Jack Grealish.

O'Donnell did very well against Grealish in the match against England in Euro 2020 and revealed that his teammate John McGinn had told him the best way to face the Aston Villa star.

When quizzed on his yellow card, O'Donnell told

: "

I was just getting a wee bit fed up at that stage of the game, he'd just come on, he was nice and fresh

.

"Normally when the fresh wingers come on that's when you're a bit tired so I thought: 'I just need to hit him here', because I was getting fed up of him trying to take the mick out of me so I gave him a wee hit.

"Thankfully John McGinn had given me some tips, he said if he comes on you need to be nibbling in his ear but don't be critical, be complimentary. 

"So the full time he was on I was telling him how good looking he was and I love his calves and asking him how he got his hair to look like that.

"[McGinn] said if you tell him he's hopeless or kick him really, really hard, he gets up and gives it back at you. Maybe that was the advantage over Jack Grealish the other night."
