McTominay was born in Lancaster but qualifies for Scotland through his Glaswegian father.

He has yet to represent either country at youth level but has trained with Scottish youth sides in the past.

Speaking on talkSport, Barton said: 'He obviously wants his summers off.

What a dig at both Scotland and McTominay.

One-cap England worldwide Barton has criticised this decision, suggesting McTominay would rather go on holiday than play in major tournaments.

"He has shown his ambition hasn't he?" He's consistently getting first team opportunities, even over better known and much higher paid star players at the same position.

The former England midfielder, who is now banned from football after breaching betting rules, added: "Maybe Manchester United and Fergie [Sir Alex Ferguson] have influenced it".

IN played last Friday and now had six days before playing again. (10.5), Isaiah Roby (8.4) and Anton Gill (8.2). Since then, the Cornhuskers are 10-2 and shooting 46 percent from the field while also outrebounding opponents.

The Irish Times cited a September 2016 interview with the club website, in which Scott McTominay said that he felt more Scottish than English.

"That's been a route map for a long period, as you see with players like Marcus Rashford and Jesse Lingard".

'Fair play to the boy, if he feels a passionate Scotsman then it can only be a good thing for Scotland, because he is a seriously talented individual'.

Instead, he now faces the very real possibility of never playing in a major global tournament.

While the choice will represent a practical one given the number of competitors McTominay would have been faced with had he opted for England, given the recent performances of young Scots like Kieran Tierney at Celtic, Andrew Robertson at Liverpool, Ryan Fraser at Bournemouth and Jason Cummings at Rangers, there certainly is potential for improvement.
