None of that justifies his lack of involvement on Saturday. This isn't a one off either. You just can't be so irrelevant to the game and put it down to a tactical role. Not as a midfielder.I'll put a Scotland spin on it.
Billy Gilmour and Callum McGregor are deep lying playmakers. They come deep to collect the ball. They seem to always have space.
Scott McTominay will never be that type of player. Ever.
He isn't a playmaker.
It isn't because he hides, it's because he hasn't got the spacial awareness of the aforementioned two.
He's best used as a roaming number 8 or a number 10. He's best played closer to the opposite box than his own.
I watched him closely in the previous 6 Scotland matches. His attacking off-the-ball movement is actually really good.
