​Gallagher delighted to play alongside Man Utd defender McTominay, Arsenal star Tierney

Scotland star Declan Gallagher has spoken about the privilege of playing with the likes of Scott McTominay and Kieran Tierney.

The Manchester United midfielder and Arsenal left-back are the two most high profile players in the Scottish squad.

Gallagher has a good relationship with both of them, and spoke in glowing terms of them as players and people.

McTominay, Gallagher and Tierney played as three centre-backs in a 5-3-2 against Serbia in a game that saw them qualify for Euro 2020.

Gallagher told reporters: "I think it's been great. Obviously being the middle man, it's perfect for me because my game is all about talking.

"Having players like Kieran Tierney and Scott McTominay by your side is only going to help you massively.

"I feel we compliment each other quite well. They are both very good on the ball, I can keep giving five yard passes to them and letting them deal with it.

"I deal with physical presences and everything else - we've got a good balance and it's working well.

"Even having Andy Robertson and Stephen O'Donnell as my two full-backs has been brilliant."
