While Manchester United were labouring to a draw at Turf Moor, former manager Ole Gunnar Solskjaer was spotted watching another team.

Along with recent United caretaker boss Michael Carrick, the pair paid a visit to Doncaster to watch Ipswich Town in action.

Solskjaer and Carrick were at Ipswich to watch former Manchester United assistant coach Kieran McKenna’s side, where he has taken over as manager.

They worked closely together at United and were pictured in the stands at Doncaster’s Eco-Power Stadium in photos released via Ipswich’s social media account.

Ipswich won the game 1-0 thanks to a first half goal and McKenna’s side have now won four games from their last five.

They are up to ninth place in the table and in with a real shot of making the play-off positions.

Manchester United loanee Ethan Galbraith has been a regular for Doncaster this season, but he was not in action last night.

Galbraith was out with a calf injury and so did not get the chance to show his progress to Solskjaer, the man who gave him his Manchester United debut against Astana in 2019.

While Carrick and Solskjaer appear to be quite content taking a break from football, their enthusiasm for the game clearly has not waned.

Solskjaer was recently pictured watching Manchester United’s women’s team where his daughter Karna made her debut two weekends ago.
