Scotland manager Steve Clarke has thrown cold water on more injury problems for the national team amid amid a fitness concern over Manchester United midfielder Scott McTominay.
The Manchester United star has been key in both defence and midfield for Steve Clarke, who named him in his Euro 2020 squad on Wednesday. But McTominay was substituted during a 1-1 Old Trafford draw with Fulham on Tuesday, set for a scan on his ankle. Clarke is already missing midfielders Kenny McLean and Ryan Jack through injury.
Speaking at his squad announcement, Clarke said: “You get a little bit nervous watching the games and hoping none of them get injured. A couple got subbed off on Tuesday and you are hoping nothing serious has happened. But the good news is nothing serious has happened, but we still have a few games to go.”
McTominay also has the Europa League final to contest with Manchester United, the midfielder saying of Scotland’s Euro 2020 chances (Sky Sports): “It’s a massive achievement but we have to aim for more. We don’t wan to look back in Euros 2020 in 10 years time and just say we got there. We have to give a good account of ourselves.”
