Scott McTominay made available - but Rangers should avoid

Scott McTominay is being watched by Scottish clubs with the view to a loan move after being made available by Man United.
The Daily Record report that Celtic and Aberdeen are watching the Scotland international. But should Rangers have an eye on the midfielder?
McTominay, 22, is a full Scotland international and was touted for big things after becoming a useful squad player at Man U last season. Under Mourinho, he made 23 appearances last year. Four of those came in the Champions League .
The midfielder also made five appearances for Scotland in 2018.

But McTominay has only made seven appearances this season. Worryingly, he’s only appeared once under Ole Gunnar Solskjaer – as a late sub against Tottenham last weekend.
That lead the BBC to run a story yesterday that McTominay was being made available for loan.
McTominay is contracted to Manchester United until 2021 and still looks to have a future at Old Trafford. The report also suggests any move depends on the whether Merouane Fellaini moves on or not.
On paper, it looks a sound move. But do Rangers really need another central midfield player?

Rangers well equipped in the middle

Scott McTominay isn’t that dribbling, creative playmaker we maybe lack. He’s another industrious midfielder. Rangers don’t need it. The club already have the likes of Ryan Jack, Scott Arfield, Ross McCrorie, Lassana Coulibaly, Jordan Rossiter, Graham Dorrans and now Steven Davis in the middle.

It also looks like Glen Kamara could be en route to Ibrox this month too.
Where does McTominay fit into the team? I’m not even sure he improves on the pool already at the club.
Whilst the Scottish international is clearly a prospect at Old Trafford, Rangers fans will probably be glad he could wind up at Pittodrie or Parkhead rather than Ibrox.
