Jesse Lingard’s brother was angry that the midfielder was not given a proper send-off at Old Trafford on Monday.

In their final home game of the season, United defeated Brentford 3-0.

Lingard’s contract with United is set to expire at the end of June. As a result, his farewell outing in front of the club’s home fans would have been on Monday.

Lingard, though, was kept on the bench for the whole encounter by interim manager Ralf Rangnick, as the 29-year-old was an unused substitution.

Lingard joined United when he was seven years old, in the year 2000. After helping United’s Under 18 squad win the FA Youth Cup, he received his first professional contract in 2011.

Lingard has won four titles with United as a senior player, including the FA Cup and Community Shield in 2016, as well as the EFL Cup and Europa League the following year.

He also scored in the Community Shield, as well as the FA Cup and EFL Cup finals, in three of those victories.

Lingard’s contribution to Manchester United, according to his brother Louie Scott, deserved more credit.

Scott vented his rage on Instagram on Monday. “Twenty years of blood sweat and tears, four domestic trophies, three cup final goals, not even a farewell.” he wrote.

“No wonder it’s Conference League next year,” he said, referring to United’s chances of qualifying for the Champions League and Europa League.

Scott then went after United’s owners, calling the club’s actions “classless” for failing to give Lingard a “send off”
