Scott McTominay has made his return to Manchester United action in a brilliant boost for club and country this afternoon.
The Scotland midfielder suffered ligament damage during the Boxing Day fixture with Newcastle United. He hasn’t featured since but returned to Red Devils training over the last few weeks.
His comeback has now been completed. He made a 79th minute substitute appearance during Manchester United’s comfortable 3-0 win over Watford at Old Trafford.
Goals from Bruno Fernandes, Anthony Martial and Mason Greenwood sealed the easy victory. With the game done, Ole Gunnar Solskjaer used it as a chance to get McTominay back into action.
Steve Clarke will no doubt be delighted with this news. Scotland face Israel on March 26th and if they win that one, Clarke’s men will face Norway or Serbia for a place at Euro 2020 during the summer.
Having McTominay available for that process will be huge for Clarke and McTominay will be pleased to be back in the Manchester United fold too.
