English-born Scotland midfielder Scott McTominay has been made available for loan by Jose Mourinho’s Manchester United, with Celtic a potential destination for the midfielder.
But should Rangers also be alerted to the availability of the 21-year-old?
International and Premier League Pedigree
Rangers are apparently on the look out for another midfielder. McTominay would add International and Premier League pedigree to the squad.
McTominary has already made four Premier League appearances for Manchester United this season. But is it enough? It’s a vital time in the midfielder’s development and he needs consistent game time. A loan suits the Old Trafford club. Would it suit Rangers?
Another name who’s been quoted as a transfer target is ex-captain Steven Davis. The 33-year-old Northern Irishman could be seen as a short-term solution to a long term prize. A title.
Scott McTominay would also be a short-term solution. But does he offer the influence of Davis?
McTominay would need to settle into the Scottish Premiership. He’s still young, it would be a developmental step for him. He’d also be back at Old Trafford within six months. Davis knows the club and he understands the challenge. He’s been here and done it before.
But if Rangers can’t secure Davis, McTominay might prove a solid short-term solution. It would also be a sore one for our rivals to take.
McTominay made 23 appearances for Manchester United last season and is highly regarded down South.
Scotland also pulled off a major coup by convincing the youngster to play for Scotland over England.
If he is an option, would you take Scott McTominay at Ibrox?
