Ryan Giggs has criticised Marcos Rojo for his “strange” decision during Manchester United’s 1-1 draw against Liverpool on Sunday.

Adam Lallana’s late goal meant the points were shared at Old Trafford in a 1-1 draw following Marcus Rashford’s controversial opener had given United the lead.

Rojo appeared in United‘s starting line-up after Axel Tuanzebe picked up an injury in the warm-up and Giggs was disappointed with the Argentinian’s defending that left Lallana unmarked for Liverpool’s goal.

“[Aaron] Wan-Bissaka has not played a lot of games, maybe if he was a little bit fitter and sharper he would have got out quicker,” Giggs told Optus Sport.

“But for Rojo to actually go past [Harry] Maguire is strange. If he holds his position maybe he can clear it. Ash [Young] never really gets goal-side but if you watch Rojo, he just anticipates where the ball is going to be instead of staying with his man.

“I think it’s a poor goal to give away but Liverpool, for that five or 10 minutes, were knocking at the door and there you see Robertson crossing the ball a lot further up the pitch, where for the majority of the game, him and Trent Alexander-Arnold were crossing the ball from 40, 45 yards out.”
