Jesse Lingard's Brother Rips Into Roy Keane And Gary Neville For 'Double Standards'

Jesse Lingard's brother has taken aim at Manchester United legends Roy Keane and Gary Neville and accused the pair of "double standards".

Keane was his usual furious self after seeing United beaten comfortably by rivals Manchester City, who strolled to a 2-0 win at Old Trafford.

One of his most quotable lines was when he said, "I've often had it when I've not been at the races in a game and I go, 'You know what, what I might do is go and smash into somebody'."

Keane was referring to the fact United picked up a single yellow card and Lingard's brother, Louie Scott referenced Paul Pogba's red card in the 5-0 thrashing at the hands of Liverpool.

"Didn't know Sky show live training sessions now," Scott posted on Instagram.

"Keane just said go smash someone. Pogba did it last week and got killed for it by Scholes. Double standards."

Gary Neville was passionate in his post-match thoughts after being on co-commentary for the defeat to City, but directed his blame at the players as opposed to manager Ole Gunnar Solskjaer.

Scott took issue with that stance, adding: "Stop reading into these pundits!!! Still waiting for G.Nev to talk about body language...Oh I forgot he will only say that about the players."

The lack of criticism for Solskjaer from former United players in the media has been well-documented. However, on Saturday, Michael Owen produced a stinging rant on the Norwegian's managerial abilities and received a lot of praise for his piece of punditry.

Rio Ferdinand has regularly backed Solskjaer but the former England and United defender has now changed his view, urging him to leave with "his head held high" before he is sacked.

United have now lost six of their last 12 games but Solskjaer is still slated to be in charge for the trip to Watford after the international.
