  • Scott Mc Tominay has opted to represent Scotland according to Sky sources

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

"Not because he's not good enough for England but because he wants to play for Scotland and that's great to see".

He was eligible to play for the Three Lions, having been born in Lancaster. I'm sure England were desperate for him as well, with the World Cup coming up in the summer.

You can always rely on Barton for a controversial reaction to a football story; however, there might be England fans out there nodding along with the former Manchester City and Newcastle United star.

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

McTominay may have been included in Southgate's squad for this summer's World Cup finals in Russian Federation had he chosen to represent England. "If he's got that, it'd be very hard for him to play for England".

"Maybe Man United and Fergie have influenced him?"

"It is not easy and then national team will be just a effect of his work at the club but I can't confirm at all that both national teams have contacted him".

He is now set to make his Scotland debut after he is named in Wednesday's squad for matches against Costa Rica at home and Hungary away. He's a fantastic young player and it's great for us as a country.

"I think Scott deserves more than what he is getting".

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

Scotland have not qualified for a major worldwide tournament since the 1998 World Cup, while England have reached every event since, except Euro 2008.

"Scotland have improved the last qualification campaign and if he feels more Scottish than English fair play to the kid".
