Man Utd Treble winner Neville slams Lingard: Far better players than him didn't get send-off

Manchester United Treble winner Gary Neville has hit out at Jesse Lingard and his brother.

The 29-year-old was an unused sub in Monday night's 3-0 win over Brentford, the club's final home game of the season.

That cued brother Louie Scott's rant on social media, as Lingard's impending departure meant it was the last chance for him to run out at the Theatre of Dreams.

Lingard himself also appeared to fire a dig at United, sharing a picture of himself as a youngster in a United top in an apparent reminder of how long he has been part of the set-up.

But reacting to the saga, Neville claimed on Twitter: "I don't get the Lingard fuss at all.

"I saw far better players than him not get a perfect send off.

"He wants to leave, he wanted a free transfer. He's got it. Move on."
