Barton aims dig at United man for trying to 'get summers off'

McTominay was eligible for both national sides, having been born in Lancashire with a Glaswegian father, however says he will play for Scotland instead of the country of his birth.

"Not because he's not good enough for England but because he wants to play for Scotland and that's great to see".

McTominay, who has been associated with United since he was five, signed a new contract in October that will keep him at Old Trafford until 2021. That's what struck me when I met him as a young player.

Looters broke into Dublin supermarket using digger during blizzards
Lidl released a statement; "We are aware of the very serious incident at our Fortunestown Lane store this evening". The men - who are between the ages of 24 to 47 - appeared before the Criminal Courts of Justice this morning.

You can always rely on Barton for a controversial reaction to a football story; however, there might be England fans out there nodding along with the former Manchester City and Newcastle United star.

But if McTominay genuinely feels more Scottish than English then he has made the right decision, even if that means he'll never play in a World Cup finals. He's a great guy, and he gets the best out of players.

"Maybe I felt that a little bit - you have to do something in the game, you have to create, you have to score, you have to show you're a good passer".

Teasing Blizzard tweet features Diablo and a 'switch'
Nintendo Switch quickly seems to be becoming the console of choice for ports, remakes, and everything not-so-processor intensive. Naturally, followers on social media thought that was supposed to indicate that Diablo was being released to the Switch.

And Jonathan Norcroft of the Times reports McLeish has persuaded the Lancaster-born midfielder - who qualifies for Scotland through Glasgow-born dad - to switch his allegiance to the Tartan Army after England were also keen to make him their own and is expected to be selected for this month's friendlies with Costa Rica and Hungary. He's a fantastic young player and it's great for us as a country.

"He'll know that, he'll adapt, and I think the biggest thing is not to put too much pressure on it. Let him find his way, ease his way into it and get that team ethos coming across".

Scotland have not qualified for a major worldwide tournament since the 1998 World Cup, while England have reached every event since, except Euro 2008.

Snow 'beast' set to plague eastern Scotland until mid next week
MET √Čireann has extended a status red weather alert for all of Munster and Leinster until 6pm on Friday. It is expecting to run a normal timetable with a small number of cancellations on Wednesday.
