Scott McTominay has returned to Scotland’s squad for their crucial World Cup qualifiers with Israel and the Faroe Islands.
The Manchester United midfielder needed groin surgery last month which forced him to miss the wins against Moldova and Austria.
He returned for United’s 2-1 win at West Ham and also started Saturday’s 1-0 defeat to Aston Villa.
