Paul Scholes is getting absolutely rinsed by football fans online after footage emerged of him chewing his daughter's toenails.
The Manchester United legend's 20-year-old daughter Alicia uploaded the video on Instagram to her 80,000 followers over the weekend.
And now, rather unsurprisingly, it has gone viral.

In the clip, the 11-time Premier League winner can be seen bizarrely biting his daughter's toenails while she films him - clearly without him knowing.
"True love," she wrote in the caption.
Context of the strange situation remains unknown with some fans suggesting he was initially giving his daughter some sort of foot rub.
That said, it's the biting of the toenails which seems to have left everyone scratching their heads with this one.
It didn't take too long for one of Alicia's followers to pinch the clip from her Instagram and post it online.
Once the footage surfaced on other social media platforms, it spread like wildfire with football fans grilling Scholes for it.
A portion of Liverpool fans were even heard chanting about it while they watched their side thrash United 5-0 at Old Trafford.
