Roy Keane slams Marcus Rashford for 'playing like a child' against Liverpool
'Rashford played like a child up front.'
Roy Keane criticised three Manchester United players after the Red Devils' dismal defeat to rivals Liverpool, claiming Marcus Rashford 'played like a child.'
United suffered a 4-0 thrashing at Anfield on Tuesday night, with Mohamed Salah, Luis Diaz and Sadio Mane all finding the back of the net.
Keane slammed several of Man United's players.
The Red Devils' ninth league defeat of the season led to club legend Keane slamming his former team at full-time, criticising Jesse Lingard and Rashford's performances, while also questioning captain Harry Maguire's defending.
"Jesse Lingard comes on!" Keane said on Sky Sports.
"Jesse Lingard coming on to try and save Man United, Jesse Lingard should have left Man United two years ago, he’s not good enough for Man United.
"Rashford played like a child up front. Okay it wasn’t great service, but the one or two bits he got where he was in on goal and a poor touch.
"Defensively, we were trying to help Maguire out here before the match, give him a little bit of PR, but the last goal, Maguire’s passing and defending, not acceptable, not good enough for Man United."
🗣️ "Lingard is not good enough for #MUFC...Rashford played like a child."

Ralf Rangnick's side - who suffered a 5-0 defeat to Liverpool at Old Trafford earlier in the season - dropped to sixth in the Premier League table, three points off fourth-placed Tottenham Hotspur.
Keane says it's a 'long way back' for Man United.
Keane also insisted that it's a long way back for his old side to be challenging for titles once again, blasting the players for having a lack of 'pride'.
He added: "There’s no surprise at the result. Over the two games this season it’s 9-0 to Liverpool.
"United are so far off it – the opposite of what you want in a top team.
"There is no leadership, no characters, no fight, no determination. It's a long way back for this club.
"Whatever we had when I played – that bit of pride – has gone."
United face-off against Mikel Arteta's Arsenal side in their next Premier League match. The two teams are currently level on points, but the Gunners have played two less games than the Red Devils.
