FORMER Manchester United man Paul Parker has surprisingly urged Scott McTominay to join Rangers.
And he was also quick to insist he does not think the Scotland international is good enough for Celtic.

McTominay, 26, has started just seven Premier League games this season, only one of which has come since the start of October.
And Parker, who won two league titles with Man Utd in the 1990s, believes a move north of the border could be on the cards for the Red Devils man.
Speaking to MyBettingSites, he said: “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 Utd. 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 Utd but if he’s 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 Utd to show that he is a good player.”
