SHOCKER! No Scots in Man Utd squad for first time in history

Manchester United still hold a connection with Scotland, despite the sale of Donald Love to Sunderland.

United's Premier League 2 squad still boast two Scots - Scott McTominay and Ethan Hamilton.

"The majority of my family is Scottish," he told ManUtd.com. "My Mum has got a little bit but my Dad's side is all Scottish. I've been to a few training camps with Scotland. I know Ricky Sbragia and Brian McClair quite well. I'm probably more Scottish than I am English but it doesn't bother me really.

"Who will I support in the World Cup qualifiers? That's a tough question! It probably depends where I am, if I'm at my Grandad's it would have to be Scotland! It's a bit of both – I want them both to do well."

Meanwhile, Ethan Hamilton has been captaining the Under-18s team and made his Premier League 2 bow against Chelsea last week. The midfielder was born in Edinburgh and is highly thought of at the Aon Training Complex.

Though for the senior squad, there are no Scots involved for the first time since United were formed in 1902.
