Manchester United midfielder Scott McTominay describes getting his first Scotland call-up as "a tremendous honour".

Manchester United midfielder Scott McTominay has admitted that his Scotland debut will be the fulfilment of a lifelong dream.

Though the 21-year-old was born in England, he has Scottish ancestry through his father.

McTominay subsequently announced his intention to declare for Scotland earlier this month following a meeting with Alex McLeish.

The Lancaster-born player is in contention to make his international debut on Friday against Costa Rica and he admits that his family is tremendously proud of his call-up.

"I have to thank the boss, Alex McLeish, for giving me an opportunity to come with the squad and hopefully show people what I can do," McTominay told the Scottish FA's official website.

"My dad's obviously tremendously proud, as all my family are. It's a tremendous honour to come away with the Scotland national team. It's what you work for your whole life, to improve, do well and hopefully help the team. I'm really pleased.

"The manager travelled a long way to speak to me and I have to thank him for that. The conversation we had was relatively simple. I wanted to play for Scotland - and I always have done, since I was a young boy, so it was an incredibly proud moment when he did call me up."

McTominay has featured 18 times in all competitions for Man United in his breakthrough campaign at Old Trafford.
