Report reveals Lingard is ‘dismayed’ at Rangnick denying him a Man Utd farewell

Man Utd winger Jesse Lingard is reportedly unhappy that Ralf Rangnick denied him from an opportunity to say a proper goodbye to the Old Trafford faithful.

The England international shone for West Ham in the second part of last season after joining David Moyes’ side on loan for six months.

Instead of pursuing a move away from the Red Devils in the summer he decided to stay and fight for his place despite slipping down the pecking order under Ole Gunnar Solskjaer.

Who thinks the Manchester United Treble beats a Liverpool Quadruple?

Despite making 22 appearances under Solskjaer and interim boss Rangnick this season, only four of those have come from the start of a match.

And Lingard – who did reportedly look to leave in January – will now leave Old Trafford on a free transfer in the summer with Man Utd looking to clear out a number of players.

Juan Mata, Edinson Cavani and Phil Jones, who are also likely to leave in the summer, were given minutes as Man Utd beat Brentford 3-0 on Monday night but Lingard was left on the bench by Rangnick.

And the Manchester Evening News claim that Lingard was ‘upset’ with Rangnick in the aftermath of United’s win against the Bees after not being able to get on the pitch for a farewell appearance at Old Trafford.

The newspaper’s sources close to Lingard insist that the winger ‘was dismayed by Rangnick’s decision to send on Edinson Cavani ahead of the academy graduate’ with Man Utd finishing the season with two away fixtures.

Lingard’s brother, Louie Scott, took to social media after the match to hit out at Man Utd and their “classless” treatment of the winger.

“20 years of blood sweat and tears, four domestic trophies, three cup final goals, not even a farewell. No wonder it’s Conference League next year,” Scott said on Instagram.

“Attacking players for celebrations when the club’s being sold to the super league OK.

“Class of ’92, Busby Babes, you’re run by people who don’t even know the offside trap. Classless and the fans need to realise. Goodnight, god bless! Been there since nine years of age and didn’t even get a send-off!!! Well done bro your family are proud.”
