Fellaini heads to Glasgow

Marouane Fellaini’s first match action after becoming a Manchester United player will be for Belgium in their World Cup qualifier against Scotland on Friday.

Fellaini is one of 10 Barclays Premier League-based players in a strong 24-man squad for the game against Gordon Strachan’s men at Hampden Park.

The unbeaten Red Devils lead Group A by three points ahead of Croatia and will take a step closer to automatic qualification for Brazil 2014 with victory over Scotland, who have only pride to play for after winning just one of their seven games so far.

Fellaini scored in Belgium’s last qualifier, a 2-1 home win over Serbia in June, to take his international tally to seven goals in 42 appearances.

The 25-year-old midfielder is set to link up with his new United team-mates at the Aon Training Complex for the first time following the international break next week, and could be in line to make his Reds debut against Crystal Palace on 14 September.
