Manchester United midfielder Scott McTominay says Liverpool left-back Andy Robertson is the only ‘certain starter’ for Scotland at Euro 2020 this summer.

The Manchester United player is a likely starter himself as Scotland head to a major tournament for the first time since 1998. But while manager Steve Clarke ponders his first XI for the opening match against Czech Republic, McTominay insists it’s only the Liverpool man and Scotland captain’s who’s guaranteed to begin the match.

McTominay said (SFA): “Nobody else is a certain starter other than Andy Robertson so we are all excited. We have trained well. Every boy’s dream is to play in major tournaments like this, World Cups and European Championships so it’s nothing but a privilege. It’s something I will look back on later in my career and be thankful for it.

“Personally, it is all about improving. Every day in training that’s what I try to do and this season I have definitely done that. The way I have conducted myself personally, and for the team, it’s all been positive. I just have to keep doing that, do the right things and keep pushing. There are more levels to come, I am a firm believer in myself.

 

“At the start of the season I always write down notes and objectives, putting in little details about what I need to improve. There are numerous things. That’s the same with the club, we go through things and where we want to get to.

“I will keep them under my belt and hope I keep moving in the right direction – in training with the coaches at my club and with Scotland. That is of real importance to me.”
