Manchester United midfielder Scott McTominay has been left out of the Scotland squad for this upcoming international break. The midfielder has featured in both of United’s Premier League fixtures so far this season but was a doubt for last weekend’s game against Southampton.
After a stellar performance on the opening day against Leeds United, the Scotland international was an early doubt for the encounter at St. Mary’s but recovered in time to be used as a second-half substitution.
Despite seemingly proving to be fit enough for the game against Southampton, it has now been confirmed that he will take no part in Scotland’s World Cup qualifiers next month.

It remains to be seen whether his exclusion is due to aggravating the injury during the weekend or if it’s a precautionary measure. Ole Gunnar Solskjaer’s team selection for this weekend’s game against Wolverhampton will be telling.
Elsewhere, Manchester United duo Daniel James and Dylan Levitt have both been included in the senior Wales squad for their games next month.
