Despite the fact he was born in Lancaster, Scott McTominay has rejected the chance to represent England at global level.

Joey Barton, speaking on talkSPORT this morning, has reacted to McTominay's decision to represent Scotland and England - and his comments are guaranteed to cause quite a stir.

The 21-year-old was born in Lancaster but his father hails from Helensburgh, north-west of Glasgow. I'm sure England were desperate for him as well, with the World Cup coming up in the summer. He's consistently getting first team opportunities, even over better known and much higher paid star players at the same position.

McTominay may have been included in Southgate's squad for this summer's World Cup finals in Russian Federation had he chosen to represent England.

McTominay has been associated with United since he was five and made his senior debut against Arsenal last May.

"We have to realise he's a young lad, he's playing for Manchester United and he's going to have a great future, but at the same time it's a totally different game playing for Scotland".

Scotland have not qualified for a major worldwide tournament since the 1998 World Cup, while England have reached every event since, except Euro 2008.
