Manchester United fans are feeling happy after Scott McTominay pulled out of the Scotland squad for the upcoming internationals against Cyprus and Kazakhstan.
The midfielder was taken off in the 3-1 win over Brighton and Hove Albion after suffering an ankle injury (via BBC).
Is Scott McTominay a future Manchester United captain?
McTominay has proved a vital player for Ole Gunnar Solskjaer this campaign, starting every single Premier League game for the north-west side (via Transfermarkt).
His form has taken off in recent weeks with the Scotsman scoring two goals in his last six top-flight games for the Old Trafford giants. McTominay has also shown his ability on the ball, being the most fouled player out of any of the United squad (2.7) (via WhoScored).
Fans were thrilled after the midfielder was released from the Scotland squad ahead of the Red Devils’ trip to Sheffield United in their next Premier League game.
Here is a selection of tweets from the Old Trafford faithful:

He will be back for the Sheffield game. He is a warrior, his recovery from injury is as good as Kane.
