'McTominay one of the best I've seen in a while' - Brown

Wes Brown has been impressed by Scott McTominay's attacking qualities, and believes he excels when played further forward.

The 27-year-old netted seven times in Scotland's Euro 2024 qualification campaign last year and also has nine for Manchester United despite not being a regular starter.

Brown says McTominay has been an "brilliant" for his former club.

“I have always liked Scott and I’m not a manager but I love him when he plays high up,” Brown said. “He has that timing into the box, he’s good in the air and he can finish.

“This season he has shown that and improved and he has been a very important player for us. Especially when it was going in a bad way and he would step up and be one of the big characters in the team.

“I just feel when we first started to play him, even if I was the manager you look at Scott and probably the physique on him is ideal for any sort of footballer, he is big, strong, long strides and you're thinking defensive midfield.

“But when you see Scott playing more he loves to get forward - it's all about timing and he is one of the best I have seen for a while.”
