Rashford was not involved in United’s 1-0 win at Fulham on Saturday as Erik ten Hag said the England forward had picked up an injury and failed a fitness test on the morning of the game.

“Please STOP spreading malicious rumours,” Rashford wrote on X, formerly known as Twitter, in response to the video.

Rashford scored 30 goals last term but his form has dipped this season as United have struggled. The 26-year-old has scored once in 14 appearances in all competitions and was criticised by Ten Hag after holding his birthday party at a nightclub following the 3-0 defeat to Manchester City at Old Trafford on 29 October.

Ten Hag said the post-derby night out was “unacceptable” but Rashford was involved in the Carabao Cup tie with Newcastle three days later, coming on as a 65th-minute substitute in another 3-0 home defeat. United are next in action on Wednesday, away to Copenhagen in the Champions League.
