Manchester United legend Roy Keane released a scathing assessment after spotting a smiling Marcus Rashford as the Red Devils' prepared to warm up for their Premier League clash with Chelsea.
The misfiring forward, 24, has looked out of sorts in recent weeks with United fans growing increasingly frustrated at his sub-par performances. Despite featuring in 31 matches, Rashford has registered just five goals this season; once the first name on the team-sheet the England international has completed 90 minutes just once since the turn of the year.
And when going through his final preparations before taking to the field to play Chelsea, Keane did not hold back when seeing a wide grin upon the face of the Man Utd attacker.
He told Sky Sports: "I want to see a bit more courage from him, we have not seen that enough from him this season, he has not been consistent, not worked hard enough, not been brave in taking people on and not taking people on.
"He is now 24-years-old, he has got to show more maturity and be more consistent, that is key for any player at a big club. I am really frustrated with him. Every time I see Marcus warming up, he is smiling.

"I don’t like it when you are smiling too much, yes smile when you do something, but we always said when he burst on the scene, he effects games, but he doesn’t do that anymore. He does very little, his performance last week was very immature, he almost played like a child."
Due to his abject displays, there had been reports Rashford was set to follow Paul Pogba and Jesse Lingard out the Old Trafford exit door when Erik ten Hag is installed as the club's new manager. However, the Dutchman is believed to be a big fan of the England ace and believes he can end his wretched run in front of goal.
Ten Hag sees Rashford as a key part of his plans going forward and with Edinson Cavani, Cristiano Ronaldo and Anthony Martial all expected to head elsewhere the current Ajax boss is eager to revive his stagnant career.
