Manchester United boss Louis van Gaal has assured Paddy McNair he's in his plans.
The defender is currently sidelined due to injury, but Van Gaal says the Ulsterman won't be cast aside.
"McNair was outstanding in his first match and you saw the reaction of the fans, they applauded every time he touched the ball.
"He was fantastic in the games he played when Jones, Evans and Smalling were not available. Everyone has to earn their position."
