Paul McShane's analogy to describe Marcus Rashford's meteoric rise is brilliantly Irish
This is vintage McShane.
If you're not following Paul McShane on Twitter, then you're missing out because the Reading captain's social media game is particularly strong.
When Marcus Rashford scored twice in the first-half of Manchester United's game against Arsenal on Sunday afternoon, Twitter was set alight.
The 18 year old striker was a virtual unknown this time last week, but now has four goals in two senior games for United, and McShane's reaction perhaps best summed up his meteoric rise... in a very distinctive, Irish way.
Marcus Rashford isn't messing about is he. Straight in no kissing.

While some might say the Republic of Ireland defender is being a little crude, it was still one of the more unique reactions to Rashford's brace.
Where on earth has Marcus Rashford been hiding?

Rashford is on £500 per week. So the £26K he earns in a year Rooney gets by lunch every day.

18y 120d - Marcus Rashford is exactly the same age that Wayne Rooney was (18y 120d) when he scored his first Premier League brace. Quirk.

Four goals for Rashford and four one-touch finishes. Pace is frightening but his movement is fantastic for an 18 year old.

Marcus Rashford has as many goals at Old Trafford in just one game than Falcao had an entire season. pic.twitter.com/xZ9szuhawH
