​Paul Scholes pulled no punches in his assessment of Manchester United‘s humiliating defeat to Liverpool on Tuesday. 

Man United slumped to their latest Premier League defeat at the hands of their bitter domestic rivals.

Ralf Rangnick’s team suffered a crushing 4-0 loss to Jurgen Klopp’s side, with Roy Keane and Gary Neville ripping into their old club following the result.


And Scholes weighed in, too, ruthlessly slamming Man United’s showing at Anfield.

He said it was ‘disgusting to watch’ and bemoaned the lack of effort shown by the players.

The 47-year-old told Premier League Productions: “I’ve lost a little bit of anger towards it (United’s poor season) now, I feel saddened, it’s not great to watch.​


“I’d like to see them give at least a little bit of effort, it looks like the last place they want to see.”

He added:​ “They want their season over, they want it done, they want to move on, but unfortunately there’s no hiding place. You can’t come to Anfield and be like that.

“Them fans have travelled a long way, it’s disgusting to watch. But that’s where the club are at the minute.

“They’ve got to give a little bit of effort, just for them fans coming to the ground.”

Scholes also took aim at Rangnick as he said don’t be ‘fooled’ by Man United’s performance in the second half.

“The stats don’t surprise you, Man Utd never laid a finger on any one of their players at any time. They were allowed to do what they want,” he explained.


“I wouldn’t be fooled by the first 20 or 25 minutes of the second half. Liverpool were bored, it was too easy. They just needed more motivation really, to really step it up again and they went and scored whenever they wanted to so I wouldn’t be fooled by that.”

The Red Devils occupy sixth place and are three points adrift of fourth-placed Tottenham ahead of the final stretch.

​They remain in the battle to qualify for Champions League football, but have just five league games remaining of the season.
