Scotland star Scott McTominay says Manchester United legend Sir Alex Ferguson and technical director Darren Fletcher are inspiring him to improve.

Legendary Manchester United boss Ferguson said recently McTominay is ‘going forward on those guidelines that Darren pursued for a long time at United.’ Fletcher was Scotland captain during his playing days and a trusted player under fellow Scotsman Ferguson. Ahead of England v Scotland tonight, McTominay says the duo drive him on.

McTominay said (MUFC): “It’s obviously such a huge honour to be spoken about by someone like Sir Alex, never mind the nice things he was saying about us and Scotland. For me, it’s a chance to keep pushing and chance to not stop pushing forwards, hopefully making everyone proud of me. Darren’s been absolutely amazing whenever he’s come in.

“Darren has been absolutely amazing whenever he’s come in He’s been a breath of fresh air. All the lads have really taken to him. He was a proper player and is a proper football man. Michael Carrick, the manager, Mike Phelan, are all men who know the game inside out with vast experience of many different leagues.
 
“For myself, it’s brilliant that I’ve got some of the best guys I could possibly wish for to help me with my game. I have to soak it in and maybe one day, be in a position like that and can say I was learning from them and the cycle continues.”
