Paul Scholes showed a damning reaction to Manchester United’s late Champions League equaliser which earned a 2-2 draw against Atalanta.
The Red Devils fought their way back from a goal down twice courtesy of two stunning Cristiano Ronaldo goals on Thursday night to grab a crucial point in Italy.
Man United’s first was a sublimely-worked team goal, before Ronaldo showed his immense quality once more with a stoppage time volley from the edge of the box.
But club legend Scholes, who was covering the game as a pundit on BT Sport, appeared seemingly unfazed by the dramatic comeback.
It was a rather telling reaction from the former midfielder, who merely clapped Ronaldo’s efforts and said “oh my god.”
Scholes failed to show the same passion as his colleague and former team-mate Rio Ferdinand, who got up and celebrated, shouting: “This is what he [Ronaldo] flipping does! It’s illegal!”
And United fans are taking Scholes’ toned down reaction to mean the two-time Champions League winner was unimpressed at United’s performance and the fact they had even been a goal down.
One fan said on Twitter: “Scholes doesn’t care,” to which another replied “think he just knows they should be doing way better and is disappointed.”
Do you think Man United should be winning silverware with the players at their disposal? Let us know in the comments section.

Another added: “Scholes is like me, literally barely any enjoyment out of watching us anymore.”
Others chimed in by applauding Scholes’ relatable responses, saying: “Scholes [is] worried that they are celebrating like it’s a final.”
Scholes was a serial winner during his playing career and has voiced his frustration towards United’s lacklustre displays this season on numerous occasions.
He admitted last month that United fans may criticise him for being “miserable” but that the defending has simply not been good enough if United want to challenge for titles.
Meanwhile, manager Ole Gunnar Solskjaer appears to have avoided a sacking for the time being despite his team being fifth in the league.
