It was a big week for Scottish footballers in Europe as we discovered who will contest both the Champions League and Europa League finals later this month.

Our nation will have one player playing in each showpiece after Chelsea made it through to the Champions League finale to play Manchester City and Manchester United wiped the floor with Roma over two legs to qualify for the Europa League final where they'll face Villarreal.

Former Rangers youngster Billy Gilmour, while he was an unused substitute in Chelsea's two-legged victory over Real Madrid, is likely to make the matchday squad in Istanbul after playing his first 90 minutes of the Premier League season against Fulham last weekend.

He did make the bench as the Blues beat Real Madrid 2-0 in the second-leg after their 1-1 draw at the Santiago Bernabéu last week. He also sat on the bench in Spain.

Meanwhile Scott McTominay, a Scotland international stalwart under Steve Clarke, will participate - and likely start - in the Europa League final against Villarreal on May 26 in Gdansk.

United lost 3-2 to AS Roma in Italy thanks to goals from Edin Dzeko, Bryan Cristante and an Alex Telles own goal but triumphed 8-4 on aggregate after a 6-2 win over their own at Old Trafford last week. Edinson Cavani bagged a brace in Rome.

McTominay played the full 90 minutes for Ole Gunnar Solksjaer's men last week but was an unused sub during the second-leg.

One Scot who was left gutted after crashing out of Europe was ex-Celtic defender Kieran Tierney. The left-back returned from injury to play most of Arsenal's second-leg semi-final against Villarreal at the Emirates.

But while he helped his side to a clean sheet the Gunners could not overturn the first-leg defeat where they lost 2-1 in Spain with a goalless draw in London meaning they were unable to capitalise on their away goal.
