Manchester United midfielder Scott McTominay has enjoyed something of a renaissance in recent weeks.
The Scotsman has seen a bit more game time lately as a result of a string of injuries affecting Ole Gunnar Solskjaer’s first-team squad.
He has started the club’s last three Premier League games, and showed his quality in the thrilling 3-1 Champions League victory over Paris Saint-Germain at the Parc des Princes.
Fans are certainly starting to warm to him again, after he struggled to convince under former manager Jose Mourinho.
It’s looking like Celtic might have missed out, with the club having been linked with a move back in January.
Have Celtic missed the boat?
McTominay put pen to paper on a new contract extension with the Red Devils (The Mirror), taking him up until 2023, with the option for a further year.
That puts United in a commanding position over the player should they wish to let him leave at the end of the season.
Celtic were reportedly keen on a loan move for 6ft 4in ace McTominay (The Mirror), but Marouane Fellaini leaving the club ultimately meant United didn’t want him to depart.
Staying put has not been such a bad thing for McTominay, who has really improved under Solskjaer, as have many other players in the squad.
His mature performance against PSG was brilliant – according to WhoScored, he registered a pass completion rate of 96.2%.
Celtic may regret not pushing for the youngster hard enough, as he has shown in recent weeks he could certainly do a job for the Bhoys.
