Man Utd midfielder Scott McTominay has been told he’s “not good enough to play for Celtic” by Paul Parker – but he should consider joining Rangers.

The Red Devils invested in Christian Eriksen and Casemiro in the summer transfer market, resulting in reduced playing time for McTominay this term.

A regular under the previous couple of managers, McTominay has made just seven Premier League starts this campaign, although he tends to come off the bench in most matches.

There have been plenty of rumours that he could be leaving in the next transfer window with the Scottish giants Celtic and Rangers mooted as potential destinations.

Parker told MyBettingSites: “Scott McTominay has to move away from Man United in the summer. He wants to stay in the Premier League but it’s going to be tough for him to find a new club. He is not good enough to play for a top side and the smaller clubs can’t pay his wages.

“But of course he can’t continue at Man United. Maybe he feels confident just sitting on the bench but that is a lack of ambition.

“And Man United don’t want a player that is comfortable with being on the bench. They want players that work hard to get into the starting lineup and not just be satisfied with playing at the biggest club in the world.”

Parker has tipped McTominay to end up at Rangers but claims the Man Utd midfielder is “not good enough” for Celtic, he added: “I think it could be a possibility for him to go to Rangers. He is not good enough to play for Celtic.

“There is no way he would be able to play regularly for Celtic in the way they play. He will have a better chance of playing if he moves to Rangers.

“But it’s a big decision for him to leave Man United. But he has to do it because right now he is also playing jeopardy with his spot in the national team. He can be a sub for Man United but if he got anything about himself he wants to play as many games as possible.

“Right now his career isn’t something to write about and he needs to show that he is hungry enough to get a decent career. I expect that he wants to leave Man United to show that he is a good player.”
