Tyson Fury, Gary Neville and Andy Cole react to Manchester United's 4-0 drubbing v Brighton

Manchester United somehow managed to stoop to a new low this season by being emphatically beaten by Brighton & Hove Albion.

In Ralf Rangnick’s penultimate game in charge, the Reds arguably produced their worst performance with yet another abject display.

The 4-0 loss at the Amex Stadium should lead to some player fines being handed out and the travelling fans being subsidised for witnessing a truly horrific performance.

At one stage some of the Manchester United fans started singing ‘your not fit to wear the shirt’, something that United’s captain on the day Bruno Fernandes felt the supporters were perfectly entitled to sing.

Your Club's SURPRISE Star This Season

The good thing is there’s only one game left to be played in what has been a truly disastrous campaign.

At one stage in the hammering against the Seagulls, Cristiano Ronaldo had a wry smile on his face. The 37-year-old couldn’t believe the meltdown and surrender he was witnessing.

It was a classic case of if you don’t laugh, you will cry, but that has been far too often the case in a memorable season for all the wrong reasons.

The Red Devils don’t play for two weeks and Rangnick will finish his tenure as United’s interim boss against the side it all started for the 63-year-old against, Crystal Palace.

Due to Wolves and West Ham’s in different form, it looks like the Reds are going to secure Europa League football next season by default.

Time will tell whether that’ll be a good thing for Erik ten Hag to contend with next season or not.

But the scale of the rebuild task the Dutchman is facing is increasing by the week and the 52-year-old will be taking over a broken football club.

United have repeatedly produced lifeless and gutless performances all season, but yesterday’s soul-destroying defeat was yet another hammer blow which shocked former players and famous fans.

Gary Neville, Andy Cole and Tyson Fury all reacted to United’s battering against Graham Potter’s Seagulls.

Manchester United will finish the season with the lowest points accumulated and the most goals conceded in a Premier League campaign.

Manchester United fans have to endure just two more weeks before looking ahead to next season with renewed optimism.
