The 63-year-old German was appointed United interim boss until the end of the season, with Rangnick taking on a consultancy role after his brief managerial spell.
Rangnick has taken charge of United for seven matches across all competitions and picked up four wins, two draws and one defeat.
United punched their ticket to the fourth round of the FA Cup with a hard-fought 1-0 victory over Aston Villa at Old Trafford on Monday.
According to The Daily Mail, Rangnick appeared to forget that his United players had received the day off after the FA Cup win over Villa.
And the United interim manager on Tuesday arrived at a ‘largely deserted’ Carrington Training Centre and eventually drove away after realising what happened.
United players are tested at a COVID unit in the car park before they are allowed to enter the Carrington complex.
“He [Rangnick] called inside from his car to ask where the testers were and was reminded the players were off. Then he drove away,” an unnamed United insider told the newspaper.
“It was the talk of the training ground. The players were all joking about it.”
The Daily Mail added that some of the United players were ‘less amused’ when they received their training rota on Friday ahead of the winter break.
It is believed that Rangnick has scheduled the ‘less popular 2pm start times’ for United training.
Rangnick’s United predecessor, Ole Gunnar Solskjaer, had planned for a ‘warm-weather training camp’ in Dubai for the winter break.
United are currently seventh in the league table and are six points adrift from fourth-place West Ham, though the Red Devils have two matches in hand.
The Red Devils will return to action on Saturday for their trip to Villa Park against Aston Villa, with kick-off scheduled for 5:30pm UK time.
