Scott McTominay commits worldwide future to Scotland

Mourinho unsure on Fellaini future at Man Utd

McTominay has since established himself as a fully-fledged member of United's first team squad with mature displays against Sevilla in the Champions League knockout stages and during last Sunday's victory over Chelsea.

"Maybe I felt that a little bit - you have to do something in the game, you have to create, you have to score, you have to show you're a good passer. If he's got that, it'd be very hard for him to play for England".

And Jonathan Norcroft of the Times reports McLeish has persuaded the Lancaster-born midfielder - who qualifies for Scotland through Glasgow-born dad - to switch his allegiance to the Tartan Army after England were also keen to make him their own and is expected to be selected for this month's friendlies with Costa Rica and Hungary.

"It would have been easy, financially, to go in the England side and if you're in the Manchester United squad there's a good chance you'll get called up by England".

Mourinho added: "I think the people around him are the right people".

The academy product didn't seem to be a player capable of getting much game time this campaign due to his competition in midfield.

United boss Jose Mourinho had encouraged McTominay to follow his heart.

"He's somebody who is going to play for the team, he's got the superstars around him and sometimes you need somebody to do that extra bit of work and be a real team player".

"Who will I support in the World Cup qualifiers?"

"He always wants the ball - he doesn't hide, takes responsibility and I think that's great for somebody around those superstars".

McTominay couldn't have possibly expected the season to go as it has done so far for him and it could end even better with a senior global cap.

"I'm sure he would have met with Alex and straight away got to see what kind of guy he is".
