Greenwood has made 18 appearances across all competitions this season and registered two assists and scored five times for United.
The 20-year-old United forward started under Rangnick in the Red Devils’ 1-1 draw against Newcastle on Monday.
However, Greenwood failed to impress at St James’ Park and was withdrawn for Edinson Cavani at half-time.
Speaking ahead of the match, Neville showered the England international with glowing praise and called him an “exceptional talent.”
The United legend added that Rangnick should play Greenwood more regularly to allow him to develop at the Old Trafford outfit.
“I think Greenwood has to play. For me, he’s an exceptional talent,” Neville said on Sky Sports.
“I think he can potentially play with his back to goal, he can receive on the half turn.
“I just think he has to play. The growth in him is greater than a lot of young players in the squad.
“He has so much to give. Everybody that’s a Manchester United fan, the coaching staff, everybody recognises that this could be something really special.
“Get his head right, keep him fit, keep him consistent, make sure he has good senior players around him that can basically lead him and get him on track and I think you’ve got something there that could be anything he wants to be in football.
“I think he has to be in the team to grow. He’s worthy of a goal all the time.
“At this moment in time probably more than [Jadon] Sancho, so for me it’s not a surprise he’s in the team -- it’s just if he plays the role Sancho is playing it’s something that’s very different for him.”
United are seventh in the Premier League table and are seven points adrift of fourth-place Arsenal, but Rangnick’s men have played two fewer matches.
The Red Devils return to Premier League action on Thursday when they host Burnley at Old Trafford.
