Charlie Nicholas admits that he is surprised that Manchester United midfielder Scott McTominay has chosen Scotland over England.

It is 18 years since a Scottish victory in an Auld Enemy game so any little triumphs must be savoured.

England manager Gareth Southgate and his Scottish counterpart Alex McLeish have each met with the 21-year-old this week in an attempt to persuade him to declare for their respective nations.

"Trying to fight to have minutes with Manchester United, which is not easy, and then national team will be just a outcome of his work at the club". Not because he's not good enough for England but because he wants to play for Scotland and that's great to see.
