Scott McTominay is helped off against Brighton.

Confirmed: McTominay out of Scotland squad

Tuesday 12 November 2019 10:41

Manchester United midfielder Scott McTominay has been forced to pull out of the Scotland squad for the upcoming Euro 2020 qualifiers.

The Academy graduate underwent a scan on his ankle on Monday and has withdrawn from Steve Clarke's squad for the internationals in Cyprus on Thursday and at home to Kazakhstan on Tuesday.

McTominay was initially hurt during the Europa League victory over Partizan Belgrade last Thursday but was fit enough to maintain his 100 per cent record of playing in this season's Premier League, for the visit of Brighton & Hove Albion.

Scott McTominay has been in top form for United this term.

In the closing stages of our 3-1 win on Sunday, McTominay went down in pain, clutching his ankle, and, although not requiring the stretcher that was brought onto the field, he still needed assistance to hobble off.

He had earlier forced an own goal by Davy Propper that doubled the Reds' lead in the first half.

There will be a hope that, with treatment, the 22-year-old will be available again for United soon.

Ole Gunnar Solskjaer's men are next in action on Sunday 24 November, with a trip to in-form Sheffield United in the Premier League.
