McTominay, born in Lancaster to a Glaswegian father, is eligible to play for both England and Scotland internationally but is yet to represent either at any level.

McTominay's manager, however, believes that he should concentrate on his Old Trafford career and claimed to have no knowledge of England and Scotland's tussle for the player. That's what struck me when I met him as a young player.

And asked for his view, Barton said: "What's he playing at?"

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

And, according to The Times, the Man United youngster has come to a decision. He's a great guy, and he gets the best out of players.

Scotland could now call McTominay up for the senior friendlies against Costa Rica and Hungary this month.

Michigan sweeps Michigan State as Big Ten Tournament magic continues
Third-seeded Purdue (28-5) faces No. 5 MI , which will try to repeat as tournament champs on Sunday at Madison Square Garden. The second-seeded Boilermakers (28-5) won their fifth straight game and will face fifth-seeded MI in the title game today.

According to multiple reports, McTominay has decided to choose his father's native land of Scotland over his own home country.

"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".

"We have to realise he's a young lad, he's playing for Manchester United and he's going to have a great future, but at the same time it's a totally different game playing for Scotland".

"I've spoken to (United's Under-23s coach) Ricky Sbragia and Nicky Butt (now head of United's youth academy) and the biggest thing is his work-rate and how much the manager thinks he can trust him".

I know you don't really sign players for the worldwide team but England were interested in him, and it's fantastic he's chosen to play for Scotland.

Naturally, due to a smaller talent pool and less competition, he is more likely to play matches for Scotland, but this won't have been the only factor he considered.
