Scotland international McTominay broke into the United first-team last season under Jose Mourinho, and was even keeping Paul Pogba on the bench at certain stages of the campaign.
However, the 22-year-old has found game time a lot harder to come by this season at Old Trafford, with just seven appearances in the Premier League – most of which have come from the subs bench.
According to Sky Sports, Celtic are ‘locked in talks’ with United over a deal to take the midfielder on-loan until the of the season but the reaction on social media suggests he wouldn’t exactly be welcomed to Paradise with open arms:
McTominay is so overrated a hope we don’t got for a shite 6 month loan for him

McTominay is actually a decent player but dont see where he fits in.

Don’t really get the McTominay signing if it’s true

McTominay on loan would be yet another baffling move from Celtic, an inexperienced CM is last thing they need, at what point are they going to be questioned on the short termism of these deals, win or lose the Title I'm not so sure Rodgers will still be at Celtic next season.

If we sign McTominay to play at the back I'm shredding my season ticket

A loan for McTominay would be absolutely pointless. I'm happy to sell Ntcham on for a decent profit but that means replacing him with another player we actually buy, not a fucking loan.

Celtic after a loan deal for Scott McTominay. That would be a decent signing for us if we manage to get him.

Bitton is much better than McTominay

Scott McTominay now being linked on loan. No thanks, not good enough in my opinion. Would rather give young Ewan Henderson the game time instead of that.

Even McTominay knows McTominay isn’t good enough for Celtic https://t.co/GIaE3CFOKN

So basically McTominay doesn’t want to fight for a spot, he wants guarantees? Then take your ass to Aberdeen. https://t.co/nhpVgfgT3z

Do you think McTominay would do a job for Celtic between now and the end of the season?
