Marcus Rashford addressed a fan who was explaining the Manchester United player’s celebration after receiving criticism from Roy Keane and Jamie Redknapp for it on Sunday during their match against Tottenham.


The England international, who scored his first goal at Old Trafford since May of last year, is beginning to revert to form after scoring in two straight Premier League games.


Before Spurs recovered late to salvage a point from the Premier League match, his spot-on execution gave United the lead for the second time against them.


In celebration of his goal, Rashford made a gesture with his hand that looked like a mouth, alluding to the jeers and taunts from the public that he and his teammates had faced during this season’s challenges.


The 26-year-old, who had commented on Jadon Sancho’s Instagram post announcing his return to Borussia Dortmund, has now acknowledged that his celebration was really directed at those who had criticised him for being unfaithful to United.


Due to disciplinary difficulties, Sancho was already banished from Erik ten Hag’s first-team squad at United. As a result, he will spend the rest of the season on loan in Germany, away from Old Trafford.


When Sancho shared a photo of Rashford participating in Dortmund training, he wrote, “Yesirrrrr,” next to a heart. Many United supporters took offence at his display of support.


When a fan wrote an explanation online and stated: “He’s clearly referring to the abuse he’s been subjected to this week since he commented on Sancho’s post,” the player revealed that his celebration against Tottenham was in reference to the issue.


They openly questioned his dedication to us and loyalty, but he silenced them by both helping and scoring. He’s s***e if he didn’t score, and this BS if he does.


With an unexpected online response, Rashford wrote,


“Thank you for clarifying this matter.”

“He’s got no right to be upset, he’s not done the business”

His admission follows Keane and Redknapp’s outburst, when they chastised the forward for evoking such a response considering his unsatisfactory play at United this year.


“We need to see more; he has the quality, as he has demonstrated previously.” Why is he acting like he’s angry with everyone? Keane told Sky Sports, “He’s got to go and enjoy it he’s playing for Man United.”


He made his game [today] simpler. He stated, “It’s evident that his manager and the coaching staff have told him that you have to run in this game when we are in possession and in space.”


Similarly, Redknapp said, ‘He’s not done the business, so he has no right to be furious. That is insufficient!
