McGrath also played for United and wrote for the Sunday World: "While I was disappointed by United's display, the other half of my heart was delighted to see Villa win yesterday.
"I had some of the best years of my career at Villa Park and they deserved the victory that was earned by Kortney Hause's late goal.
"Losing Jack Grealish was a massive blow to Villa, but I have been so impressed with how they have started this season in his absence.
"I was delighted to see the Villa fans celebrating at the end as they were fantastic to me during my time at their club, but the misery of United fans was hard to watch."
