MANCHESTER UNITED midfielder Scott McTominay has opted to pledge his international future to Scotland over England.

The 21-year-old rising star held recent talks with returning manager Alex McLeish as he pondered his decision.

McTominay was born and raised in Lancaster, but his father, Frank, is Glaswegian and the player has decided to represent the Scots.

He is expected to be named McLeish’s squad for the games against Costa Rica and Hungary later this month.

England gaffer Gareth Southgate and his Scottish counterpart had been vying for the services of the smooth operator who has never represented either country at youth level.

McTominay has made 15 appearances for Jose Mourinho’s team since his emergence this season and is line to play in the Premiership encounter against Crystal Palace at Selhurst Park this evening.
