Scott McTominay equalled an Ole Gunnar Solskjaer benchmark vs Omonoia

The Scot enjoyed a night to remember on Thursday


Manchester United star Scott McTominay, on Thursday evening, secured for himself a special piece of club history.

Scottish international McTominay, of course, has seen his name take its place front and centre in the headlines over the last couple of hours.

This comes on the back of a remarkable 90 minutes at Old Trafford.

After Erik ten Hag’s troops welcomed Cypriot outfit Omonoia to Manchester for a Europa League group stage clash, proceedings looked set to peter out into a 0-0 stalemate, despite the Red Devils directing no fewer than 30 shots at goal.

This was until the aforementioned McTominay emerged from the bench late on, to lash an injury-time winner beyond the clutches of Man of the Match Francis Uzoho, sparking a collective sigh of relief across the Theatre of Dreams.

And, in the process of proving himself match-winner, McTominay, as alluded to above, etched his name into the history books.

This comes with it having since been revealed that the midfield general tonight became the first substitute to score a winning goal for Manchester United beyond the 90th minute of a European fixture since ex-manager Ole Gunnar Solskjaer in the Champions League final, all the way back in 1999.
