Mason Greenwood has moved to change his Instagram bio and has been axed by Nike after having all charges against him dropped.
The Crown Prosecution Service confirmed last week that charges of attempted rape, assault and coercive control against the 21-year-old had been dropped over a year after he was arrested by police. Greenwood, who remains suspended by Manchester United, issued a statement following the news but has not commented further on his situation since.
However, he has since altered his Instagram profile, deleting more than 100 posts to leave just nine uploads, taking down his display picture and changing his bio.

Following the changes, Greenwood's bio on the platform now reads: "@manchesterunited @nikefootball." However, he has been dropped from his Nike sponsorship.
After Greenwood's bio change came to light, a spokesperson for the company told The Sun: "Mason Greenwood is no longer a Nike athlete."
Greenwood will also remain absent from the FIFA series of video games despite having the charges against him dropped after EA Sports announced he would not be reinstated on their latest game.
United are set to carry out their own investigation before deciding how to proceed with Greenwood, who has been suspended by the club since his initial arrest.
The players at Old Trafford have reportedly made their stance clear, though, fearing a return to the squad for Greenwood would prove to be a distraction to their season.
A source told The Sun: "The players are open to him returning to the team but the scrutiny could be massively distracting. The dressing room is the happiest it has been for ages and no one wants to rock the boat."
Prior to changing his Instagram account, Greenwood had released a statement in response to having his charges dropped last week.
The statement read: "I am relieved that this matter is now over and I would like to thank my family, loved ones and friends for their support. There will be no further comment at this time."
