MANCHESTER UNITED rookie Scott McTominay has been hailed as a future Red Devils captain, aged 22.
The Scot had an impressive game in central midfield as United thumped Chelsea 4-0 in their opening game of the Premier League season.
But it was what he did in celebrating Marcus Rashford firing United 3-0 up that really hit the spot.
As the players huddled in the corner by the Stretford End, pumped-up McTominay could be seen yelling “we go again” to his team-mates.
And the world of Twitter loved it with many calling for him to be named skipper.
Instead it was keeper David De Gea who was handed the armband and celebrated it by keeping a clean sheet.
One United fan described how McTominay’s passion was “the highlight” of the game, while another even wrote that they were “close to crying” when he said it.
Ryan Batty posted that the young Scot of new signing Harry Maguire should be captain, while Harshad Ved said that they were “words he would be remembered for”.
Mayecor Sar wrote that United had “missed leaders like that”, while another posted that it showed “great leadership from a young lad”.

Rashford struck twice as Manchester United opened their Premier League account with a resounding 4-0 victory over Frank Lampard‘s Chelsea at Old Trafford.
It was an awful start for the new Chelsea boss in his first competitive game on the bench for his old club who struck the woodwork twice in the first half but paid for their defensive frailties as Anthony Martial and Dan James also scored.
The win was United’s biggest over Chelsea in a top-flight match since the same scoreline in March 1965 under Matt Busby.
