Rashford ushered away by teammates after pitchside argument with Man United fan

    Marcus Rashford appeared irked by comments from a Manchester United fan during the pre-match warm-ups on Wednesday night.

    In footage shared on social media, a supporter in the bottom tier of the Stretford End appeared to shout something towards him.

    Rashford cut a confused figure as he partook in the warm-ups with his teammates before walking towards the fan and responding.

    It’s unclear what was being said but a pitchside steward waved his hand at the supporter as if to tell them to calm down.

    Another clip shows Christian Eriksen seemingly telling Rashford to walk away from the stand amid the confrontation.

    He then walked towards the centre of the pitch at Old Trafford ahead of kick-off in a crucial fixture for United, which sees them face Newcastle.

    Both they and Newcastle are fighting for the final European spots along with Chelsea, who are in action against Brighton.

    United took the lead on 31 minutes through Kobbie Mainoo, his fourth goal of the season.

    Newcastle equalised in the opening moments of the second-half through Anthony Gordon but the hosts regained the lead thanks to Amad Diallo.

    European qualification would come as a welcome finish to United’s season, one that has fluctuated since the opening day.

    They also still have an FA Cup final to play next weekend against rivals Manchester City as they eye more silverware under Erik ten Hag.

    There are still questions over the Dutchman’s future at Old Trafford amid an overall underwhelming campaign.

    Former Chelsea boss Thomas Tuchel has been linked as a potential replacement at the end of the season.

    However, talkSPORT understands he looks poised to stay at Bayern Munich despite them announcing earlier in the campaign that he will leave this summer.
