Scott McTominay has been hailed by the Tartan Army after the Manchester United man turned in an out-of-position shift for Scotland.

The Manchester United midfielder featured in defence for Steve Clarke’s side as they beat Faroe Islands 4-0 at Hampden, two goals from John McGinn plus Che Adams and Ryan Fraser efforts sealing victory.

It puts Scotland second in the World Cup 2022 qualification group, sitting above Austria and Israel with five points, although Denmark are out in front with nine points and 14 goals in three games. The Danes haven’t conceded either.

McTominay has been moved around by Clarke, opting for the Manchester United man in midfield before moving him into right-centre-back in the 3-5-2 system from September last year. In this camp, he has moved back into midfield.

He shone in the draws against Austria and Israel but Clarke picked him in defence for the match against the Faroes, the Manchester United star not disappointing despite the change. It’s earned praise from Scotland fans.
