Scott McTominay will hopefully return to action for Manchester United in December after an injury ruled him out of Scotland duty says Ole Gunnar Solskjaer.

The midfielder suffered a nasty looking ankle injury prior to linking up with Steve Clarke’s side. It ruled him out of matches against Cyprus and Kazakhstan.

Now his domestic manager has said that the Scots midfielder could return for the Red Devils next month.

He told the Manchester Evening News: “He’s not been training with us, he’s still recovering and I wonder if we can see him maybe around Tottenham, [Manchester] City, about that time.

“We don’t know yet. He heals quick, Scotty.”

McTominay return a relief for Scotland

After such an awkward fall, McTominay is lucky to not have suffered a serious injury. Thankfully, his return will be a lot sooner than some may have feared.

He’ll want to build up his impressive form this season that has allowed him to become a mainstay for both club and country.

So far, he has played all of Manchester United’s Premier League game outwith the Sheffield United match which he missed through this ankle problem. He’ll be a key player for Scotland in the Euro 2020 play-offs against Israel, and if they beat them, Norway or Serbia.

It’s great to hear that he’ll likely be back for Christmas.
