Marcus Rashford told Harry Maguire to ‘shut the f*** up’ during a row in Manchester United’s draw with Crystal Palace on Wednesday.
The Red devils laboured to a boring stalemate at the Selhurst Park and are now 14 points behind Premier League leaders Manchester City.
Tensions between United’s stars were evident during the second half of the game as Solskjaer’s side struggled to create clear-cut opportunities against Palace.
And in the 69th minute of the clash, Rashford lost his temper with Maguire after the United skipper criticised him for failing to stay onside during an attacking move.
Maguire, who headed the ball forward, told Rashford to ‘f***ing stay onside’. But after being penalised for being offside, Rashford hit back at the defender with: ‘Shut the f*** up, f***ing nobhead.’
Speaking after United’s draw, Solskjaer told Sky Sports: ‘It’s disappointing. We were just a little bit off. If you’re not spot on you won’t win games. Palace always make it hard for you. In the second half we never got going.
‘Sometimes it’s human nature, sometimes you don’t work at your best. Today we didn’t. It’s been a long season – I’m not blaming that because everyone has the same season. You’re playing against a good team who make you play the way they want to.

‘We kept giving the ball away. There were times in the first half we built some pressure, had some half decent chances but kept giving it away. Then you don’t build momentum and that’s the game you get.’
