The winner was special for Rashford, who responded to recent criticism of his poor displays with goals against Brentford and West Ham.
“He's one of the top strikers in England," the interim boss said. “He's an English international, who regularly played in the Euros and we all know what quality he has.
"He has almost everything a modern striker needs. He's got the pace, skills, he's got the size and physicality of a striker and in the end it's all about confidence for strikers.
“I'm pretty sure that those two goals have raised the level of confidence within Marcus but now it's about taking steps, to show that on a regular basis.
“It's about continuity now and I think he can play a very important role for the rest of the season for us."
