Reaction: Man United fans rage on Twitter and beg LVG to ditch Wayne Rooney

As far as games go, Manchester United striker Wayne Rooney has certainly had better nights. Having come off the bench against Championship side Middlesbrough, the 30-year-old was unable to effect the game and provide a spark to get into the next round of the cup.

Clearly in a slump, Rooney not only failed to ignite his team, but sealed their exit by missing United’s first penalty in a short shootout.

And it seems that Red Devils fans are short on sympathy at the moment, as a number of them took to Twitter to beg manager Louis van Gaal to move him on before he embarrasses himself.

Are they being harsh, or so they make a strong case?
