David Gray not giving up on Man Utd dream

David Gray hasn't given up on following the success of fellow Scot Darren Fletcher at Manchester United.

The youngster is currently on-loan at Plymouth Argyle.

Gray's deal at United expires in June and the told the Scottish Sun: "Darren was always a player who was going to be good enough, even when he was 16.

"He had a few injuries and had to keep battling away, but there was never a doubt he would make it. He got a bit of stick at first, perhaps because he was an easy target for the fans down there - but he's won them over.

"Darren's also really good with the young lads. With me being Scottish he's maybe a wee bit biased towards me.

"We're from the same area so he's always there if I need to speak to him.

"Before I signed my last contract he spoke to me and gave me a bit of advice which was great. My United deal's up at the end of the season so I'm just trying to get as many games as I can at Plymouth and take it from there.

"I'm 21 now so I need to be playing as often as I can.

"But getting into the first team at United is not easy and I'd been playing a lot of reserve football.

"I had the opportunity to go back to Plymouth so I took that to try and get as many games as I could.

"When I re-joined Plymouth they hadn't won a game in seven or eight, but we've won the last two and we've turned it around a bit. If I can do really well then hopefully I'll get a chance at United when I go back."
