The former United captain can still see a lot of qualities in today's Maguire which first convinced him to sign the former Sheffield United youngster.

"My chief scout at the time, Stan Ternant, said to me: 'I've just seen an interesting player play for Sheffield United. This kid is good in both boxes. He told me he's 21, he's played 150 times for Sheffield United, he's the captain, he won Player of the Year three years on the spin'," Bruce told Betway.

"He said: 'I believe the kid's got something', so we went to watch him and I was a little bit worried when I first saw him, because of his mobility."

Bruce added: "You understand when he's not there how much you miss him. He's resilient. He's got something about him. He's never let England down and, for me, he's never let Manchester United down either."
