Former United midfielder Paul Scholes was scathing in his criticism of Rangnick’s side and of the club’s decision to appoint the German.

Scholes told BT Sport: “It’s really been a bad six or seven months, you think the season’s not been good enough.

“The sacking of Ole was coming, we all knew that, but we all felt where was the plan? There has to be a plan, there has to be an elite, top coach coming into the football club to revive the football club.

“It’s Manchester United, they should have the best of everything, and to not have a plan and bring in what is a sporting director – he’s coached a team two years out of the last 10.

“Don’t get me wrong, I like the man, he comes across well, but he’s looked like he’s lacked coaching in the last five or six years. They’re a team of individuals, you look at the difference today in Man United to Southampton.

“Southampton were brilliant, the coaching, methods, passages of play, it was fantastic. You look at Manchester United and they were all over the place.”
