    Out-of-form Marcus Rashford has taken to social media to criticise 'malicious rumours' regarding a potential departure from Old Trafford.

    After leading Manchester United's top scorers with 30 goals last season, the 26-year-old has been off the boil this term with only one goal to his name. Rashford was left out of Erik ten Hag's squad for Saturday's 1-0 win at Fulham, with the club claiming the player was injured.

    However, it was perhaps too coincidental that the absence came after Rashford was in the headlines for the wrong reasons this past week. Some pundits questioned his decision to hit the town for his birthday after United were humbled 3-0 in the recent Manchester derby.

    "Please STOP spreading malicious rumours," the England international wrote on X (formerly Twitter) in response to a Man United account circulating rumours of his potential exit. It was only in July that Rashford agreed a new five-year contract worth a reported £325,000 a week.

    After going 10 club games without a goal, Rashford didn't have the opportunity to end that drought at Craven Cottage. And his side might have done with the help after an injury-time winner from Bruno Fernandes was required to take the three points.
