Asked how hard it is as national team manager to convince a player to play for Scotland, Levein replied: "It just depends how they feel, the players themselves".
"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". I'm probably more Scottish than I am English but it doesn't bother me really.
When asked whether he was surprised at how well McTominay had taken to regular first-team football, Mourinho said: "I think [it is a] effect of his profile as a boy and I think people around him are the right people, I think".

"It would have been easy to go financially to the England side and, if you are in the Manchester United team, then there's a good chance you get called up by England. He's a great guy, and he gets the best out of players".
"I think Scott deserves more than what he is getting".
Fletcher who played in Scotland's final two World Cup qualifiers against Slovakia and Slovenia last October, is waiting to discover whether he will remain part of new Scotland boss McLeish's plans.
He said: "Because it looks like England are missing him, if I was Alex McLeish, the first thing I would do would be to come to me".
