Once Rangers-linked Manchester United midfielder Scott McTominay is back in the Old Trafford picture after reports of a £30m West Ham bid.

According to the likes of the Manchester Evening News, the Red Devils rejected West Ham’s £30m advances for the Scotland international earlier in August.

This comes at the same time as the Hammers were tailing England international centre-back Harry Maguire, who is now set to stay at Old Trafford.

And whilst there have been plenty of exit murmurs around Scott McTominay, the Manchester United Academy graduate could be handed another shot at glory at the club.

According to reports in the Telegraph, summer signing and ex-Chelsea star Mason Mount has picked up a troublesome hamstring injury which is set to keep him out for up to six weeks.

This, it is being claimed, is set to hand Scott McTominay a Manchester United exit reprieve as the figures surrounding the midfielder make the heads of Rangers fans spin.

Former Rangers captain Craig Moore send the tabloid keyboards clacking when he tipped Scott McTominay to join the Ibrox side in the summer.

“Scott McTominay may look at options next season, he would be great for Rangers,” said Craig Moore.

“I don’t know what Rangers are looking at it at the moment but to get someone like McTominay – and it would be a loan because that is the only way a deal would be possible. Man United would probably swallow a large part of that bill if it were possible.

“It would make more sense for a loan scenario to be in Scotland, and maybe Rangers, because domestically Man United wouldn’t want to strengthen their competitors.”

But when £50m valuations started appearing in the press, Rangers fans got a dose of reality with the midfielder almost certainly out of Ibrox reaches.

Old Firm rivals Celtic were also linked this summer but it’s clear Manchester United want big money for the 26-year-old Scotland midfielder.

Having already rejected £30m from West Ham, there is clear resistance to Scott McTominay leaving Manchester United and suggestions of Rangers interest are ambitious at best.
