Scottish soccer player Scott McTominay is back on target on Monday to lead his side past his Premier League rivals.


A little about Scott McTominay

Red Devils interim boss Ralf Rangnick named Scottish star Scott McTominay to one day deliver the captain’s armband for Man Utd after a midfielder led his side to a third-round FA Cup victory over Aston Villa on Monday. Scottish International Scott McTominay scored the only goal of a game at Old Trafford and his second in his last three games with a beautiful header that eluded Emiliano Martinez’s grasp eight minutes in. Villa then had the ball in the net twice in the second half, but saw that both efforts were ruled out.


What did Ralf Rangnick say about Scott McTominay?

When asked about Man Utd’s goalkeeper midfielder, Red Devils interim boss Ralf Rangnick said Scott McTominay is an academy boy, his energy is amazing. According to Ralf Rangnick now Scott McTominay is also starting to score goals and also with some leadership skills. Rangnick also said that he would not be surprised if the Scottish footballer is captain of this team in a couple of years. Scottish star Scott McTominay also played a part in their previous win, securing an impressive starting goal in their 3-1 win over Burnley in late December.


David de Gea was outstanding again for Rangnick

Ralf Rangnick also had warm words for David de Gea, who kept Villa at bay late, with a string of lovely stops. Ralf Rangnick added that they have to turn the team into a clean slate team and that was another one today, but still David de Gea was outstanding again for Ralf today. According to the red devils manager he would like David de Gea to have fewer saves in total, Ralf thinks they had four or five shots on goal, but again they can still improve even in this area.
