Scotland boss Steve Clarke has provided a worrying injury update on Manchester United midfielder Scott McTominay.

Clarke has provided an update on the Scotsman and it doesn’t sound entirely promising.

He told the Evening Express (page 37, 16/11/19): “Scott has done well and has had a really good season.

“He has picked up a nasty-looking injury.”

Clarke statement comes after McTominay provided injury update

This claim from Clarke follows on from McTominay’s own injury update. He took to Instagram to tell followers that he is ‘working hard’ to make his way back to full fitness.

It’s a blow for Scotland as he is missing two games of action prior to two huge fixtures in March. Clarke needs McTominay fully firing for the Euro 2020 play-offs next year.

Manchester United meanwhile will be sweating over the Scotsman’s fitness. McTominay’s been an integral part of their squad so far, featuring in every Premier League game.

Clarke’s update is hardly one that will ease the minds of many United supporters.
