Scott McTominay could be a doubt for Scotland’s Euro 2020 qualifiers against Cyprus and Kazakhstan after suffering an ankle injury.

The midfielder, 22, limped off during Manchester United’s Europa League win over Partizan Belgrade.

He suffered the problem in an innocuous challenge and, although he tried to continue, he had to be replaced.

“He went over his ankle and it didn’t look too good,” said manager Ole Gunnar Solskjaer.

The Norwegian, whose side host Brighton in the Premier League on Sunday, added: “He said ‘I’ll be fine, I’ll be fine’ but had to come off. I hope he’ll recover for Sunday.”

Scotland, who cannot qualify from Group I, face Cyprus away on 16 November then Kazakhstan at Hampden three days later.

Manager Steve Clarke is already without Kieran Tierney – who Arsenal asked to be left out as he has an “ongoing issue” – as well as Charlie Mulgrew and Stuart Findlay, who both have hamstring problems.
