Scottish influence

10 February 2014

Ryan Flynn was quick to praise the influence of his countrymen following United's weekend success over Shrewsbury Town.

Flynn opened the scoring in front of the Kop following excellent build-up involving Jamie Murphy and Stefan Scougall. Then minutes later United's January recruit from Livingston dipped home his first for the Blades after a forward burst by Neill Collins.

United's reliance on the Scotsman is often joked about with Flynn revealing: "We said afterwards it is a good job the team is now full of Scottish lads.

"Me and Jamie Murphy scored at Villa Park and then on Saturday not only was it two Scottish boys that scored, it was the Scots claiming the assists too.

"Now with the addition of Bob Harris and 'Scougs', the Scottish lads boss the dressing room, despite the best efforts of Billy Paynter, Jose Baxter and Conor Coady!

"The Scots are taking over," Flynn joked. "Stephen McGinn asked at Fulham if the national anthem was going to be played when we lined up to shake hands!"
