Ian Holloway Says Manchester United Should Transfer List Jesse Lingard After Snapchat Story

Ian Holloway has slammed Jesse Lingard for his obscene behaviour on social media and believes Manchester United should transfer list him.

The United midfielder, 26, posted a bizarre tour around his apartment in Miami while dropping swear words throughout the video.

But the ex-Queens Park Rangers and Blackpool boss says that the Red Devils should take action against him for his behaviour on holiday.

"When you're a professional footballer, you're representing your country every single second of the day," he said on talkSPORT.

"He's been brought up through Sir Alex Ferguson's regime. He should know how to behave at all times.

"He has videoed this himself and put it on social media himself. So, for me, there's no way back.

"The manager and his staff have got to sort this out. That is unacceptable from him. I'd put him on the transfer list.

"He has forgotten who he is and what his contract means. In his contract, he will have things saying, 'You will not bring the club into disrepute.'

"He could be sacked for that."

Former footballer and manager Ally McCoist also said that the England international's behaviour was totally unacceptable.

"The sad thing is I'm not surprised, I don't know if any of this nonsense on social media surprises me anymore," he explained (via talkSPORT).

"I understand totally that social media is a massive part of today's world, particularly with the younger generation.

"But at the same time, surely you've got to show a bit of responsibility and common sense when you're using it.

"I'm looking at the reaction from Manchester United fans, and they're worse than angry, they feel completely let down.

"He's well entitled to go on holiday and have a good time, but why would you put something like that on social media? Does he actually think that's going to benefit him?

"I don't think there's ever been as much of a gulf between the top players and the fans. Young fans are looking for role models -- that isn't a role model.

"Bryan Robson, Roy Keane, Sir Alex Ferguson, imagine them watching that -- what are they thinking?"

Holloway and McCoist are not alone in voicing their feelings as United fans flooded social media with their frustration towards Lingard.
