CLYDEBANK'S very own John and Paul McGinn represented the town on the international stage this week.

The footballing pair, who hail from Clydebank along with their brother and fellow footballer Stephen McGinn, played in Scotland's impressive victory against Austria in Vienna on Tuesday, September 7.


John earned his 36th cap for his country - having won his 35th against Moldova three days earlier - when he was named in the starting line-up for the match at the Ernst Happel Stadion.

And Hibernian defender Paul made his international debut when he came on as a substitute, replacing Motherwell's Stephen O'Donnell in the 77th minute of the 1-0 victory which took Scotland one step closer to qualifying for the 2022 World Cup in Qatar.

Taking to Twitter, Aston Villa midfielder John posted a photo standing side by side with his brother after the match, saying "What a special night couldn't be prouder".

A third Bankie, St Johnstone goalkeeper Zander Clark, who went to school at Clydebank High and Braidfield High, was called up to the squad for the triple-header against Denmark, Moldova and Austria, but his wait for his first international cap must go on a little longer after Hearts' Craig Gordon came through all three matches unscathed.

Scotland's next qualifier is against Israel at Hampden on Saturday, October 9.
