McNeill, 20, appeared for Manchester United in the Europa League clash against Real Sociedad.

The LaLiga outfit won the match 1-0 and McNeill did not make another appearance in the first team.

The sole outing was a “dream” come true for the striker.

He told the BBC: “Fortunately, I got to make my debut, and I was upfront with him [Ronaldo], and it was surreal.

“So that was another dream come true.

“I didn’t really expect to come on we were losing 1-0 so I thought he would put somebody else on.

“But he put me on and I was just buzzing, in front of 75,000, a dream come true again.”

McNeill had loan spells at Newport County and Stevenage until he was recalled in January.


He departed Old Trafford at the end of the season as a free agent.

Reports claim that he had interest from the MLS and clubs in Serie A, but he has opted for the Championship side.
