And Mourinho fuelled the fire of the global allegiance debate last month when he said Scotland should pick McTominay "because it looks like England is missing him". "It's a bit of both - I want them both to do well". I'm probably more Scottish than I am English but it doesn't bother me really.

Despite the fact he was born in Lancaster, Scott McTominay has rejected the chance to represent England at worldwide level.

McTominay has made 15 appearances for Jose Mourinho's team since his emergence this season and is line to play in the Premiership encounter against Crystal Palace at Selhurst Park this evening. "I can't confirm because I have no information about that and my advice to him is not about national teams, is not about that".

He is now set to make his Scotland debut after he is named in Wednesday's squad for matches against Costa Rica at home and Hungary away.

Fletcher who played in Scotland's final two World Cup qualifiers against Slovakia and Slovenia last October, is waiting to discover whether he will remain part of new Scotland boss McLeish's plans. He's a fantastic young player and it's great for us as a country.

New Reports Suggest Brock Lesnar Was Pulled From WWE Raw On Purpose
He was about to headline WrestleMania in a title match with Reigns, and his WWE contract was set to expire shortly after the PPV. Leaving WWE , with whom Lesnar has been under contract since 2012, seemed to be a more likely option last summer.

"That's not to say he's not got ability himself but sometimes when you first come into the team, especially at Man United, you've got to earn the right".

"He'll know that, he'll adapt, and I think the biggest thing is not to put too much pressure on it. Let him find his way, ease his way into it and get that team ethos coming across".

"I'm sure he would have met with Alex and straight away got to see what kind of guy he is".

"I think long way to go obviously but very feet on the ground, very stable and I hope he can keep the same image".

"I think more important than his career is his feelings, his family's feelings, the way he feels about it and also the overall situation with him".
