'Looking from the outside': Scotland coach sends honest McTominay message to Ten Hag

Scotland assistant manager John Carver believes Scott McTominay deserves to play more for Man United

"I'll be honest, I'm surprised he hasn't been in the Manchester United team," Carver admitted. "But I don't manage that team. I'm looking from the outside.

"It shows you the type of character Scott is. He could have easily thrown his toys out of the pram, but he has knuckled down, worked extremely hard and has waited for his opportunity.

"He came into the game at the weekend and you could see the delight on his face when he scored those goals. I was delighted for him.

 "He has shown a bit of patience. He could have gone in the summer. He didn't go - he wanted to stay at Man United and that shows you his character. He has shown he's good enough to get in the team and this is an opportunity for him.

"I can't tell Ten Hag how to do his job but there will be a lot of support to get him in the team from Man United fans. You saw the reaction of the crowd when he scored and the reaction on his face. He loves Man United and you need a certain personality to play at Man United.

"He's got that in abundance. But that's Man United. He's with us now and is coming into the Scotland camp with a huge amount of confidence.

"When he came in yesterday, I just called over to him: 'Here's the goalscoring McTominay'. He's had a tough time lately and he deserves all the credit."

McTominay scored twice against Brentford. He has started just twice in the Premier League this season.
