Ahead of Scotland’s trip to Moldova in the World Cup qualifiers on Friday, Manchester United midfielder has been disallowed to play.

Manchester United midfielder Scott McTominay has been ruled out of Scotland’s World Cup qualifier match against Moldova on Friday.

The national team manager Steve Clarke affirmed that the 24-year-old playmaker was sent home from a training camp in Spain.

According to the Scotland head coach, McTominay has been suffering from a throat virus and was asked to rest ahead of their game.

However, the Manchester United star could potentially rejoin training with the rest of his squad if he is deemed fit to play. The Tartan Army will face Denmark in the final game of the qualification on Monday.

Speaking ahead of the trip to Moldova, Clarke said: “Almost everyone is good. Unfortunately, Scott McTominay has picked up a bit of a throat virus. So we have sent Scott home to rest and recuperate and hopefully join us again at the weekend.”
