The former IRA leader died early on Tuesday morning at Altnagelvin Hospital in Derry after battling a rare heart disease.
The death of the former leader led to a flurry of outpouring across the country from politicians, and even the Queen, that it pushed a former soldier to return his medal.
Speaking to Nigel Farage on LBC, the caller, Jonathan Williams admitted he was extremely unhappy with the tributes for the former IRA leader since his death.
He said: “I’ve just been disgusted by so many things about what I've heard today from the entire elite political class who seem to think that this man is warranting virtual sainthood.”

The former soldier then clarified why he was unhappy with the Queen, who is to write to McGuinness' family following his death.
He added: “What really annoyed me and made me very sad was, and I’m sure it’s not because of the Queen’s real thoughts on this, for goodness sake, she has lot members of her own family hasn’t she.
“I think she has been very very badly advised to send condolences to this wretched man’s family, if she hadn’t have done it the world wouldn’t have stopped turning.”
Mr Williams then continued explaining why he was so frustrated by the number of comments made about McGuinness.
He said: “At the end of the day the servicemen who went to Ireland to help protect the people of Ireland from a gang of vicious psychopaths because that's what Martin McGuinness and the people he operated were.”

The former Ukip leader agreed that McGuinness had played a significant role in the peace process but said it was not right to ignore his past, adding he had never heard the former IRA leader “apologise”.
Farage said: “It is possible of course for people to reconcile, it is possible for people to forgive.
“But it is very difficult to forgive and it’s very difficult to say nice things, about a man who did appalling things and at no point apologised for any of it.”
