Joey Barton trolls Scotland as he gives honest opinion on Scott McTominay

Despite being born in England, McTominay has reportedly chosen to represent the country where his father was born.

"Not because he's not good enough for England but because he wants to play for Scotland and that's great to see".

Sport revealed that McTominay pledged his future to Scotland over the weekend after meeting Alex McLeish at United's training ground.

According to The Times, McTominay had sat down with both Southgate and McLeish ahead of making his decision.

One-cap England global Barton has criticised this decision, suggesting McTominay would rather go on holiday than play in major tournaments.

"He's obviously showed his ambition, hasn't he?"

McTominay, who has been associated with United since he was five, signed a new contract in October that will keep him at Old Trafford until 2021.

The Irish Times cited a September 2016 interview with the club website, in which Scott McTominay said that he felt more Scottish than English. That has been a route map for a long period if you look at [Jesse] Lingard and [Marcus] Rashford etc.

"Fair play to the boy, if he feels a passionate Scotsman then it can only be a good thing for Scotland, because he is a seriously talented individual".

"What's he playing at?" the former Newcastle star said.

"Who will I support in the World Cup qualifiers?"

Instead, he now faces the very real possibility of never playing in a major worldwide tournament.

"I know you don't really sign players for the worldwide team but England were interested in him, and it's fantastic he's chosen to play for Scotland".
