Liverpool legend Jamie Carragher stuck the boot in to Roy Keane and Manchester United following their embarrassing FA Cup exit.

The Premier League giants crashed out of the FA Cup in the fourth round as Championship side Middlesbrough won a nail-biting penalty shootout at Old Trafford.

Ralf Rangnick’s side looked on course to progress when summer signing Jadon Sancho gave the hosts the lead midway through the first half, but United were made to pay for a number of missed chances – including Cristiano Ronaldo’s wayward penalty – when Matt Crooks equalised on 64 minutes.

The FA Cup tie went to penalties and both teams scored seven spot-kicks before young striker Anthony Elanga smashed his shot over the bar to give Chris Wilder’s side a famous win.

Following Manchester United’s FA Cup exit, Carragher trolled Keane in reference to a debate they had over Ronaldo’s return to Old Trafford following a 1-1 draw with Chelsea in November.

‘Roy Keane told me Man Utd had signed Ronaldo to win the FA Cup,’ Carragher tweeted with a shrugging emoji.

The former Liverpool and England defender added: ‘I really hope Roy doesn’t go to Sunderland!’ with a fingers crossed emoji.

Manchester United have flattered to deceive since Rangnick replaced Ole Gunnar Solskjaer as manager in November and this was another setback to the German’s reign.

He said: ‘I’m incredibly disappointed, we should have won and killed off the game in the first half. Crossbar, post, missed penalty and numerous chances.

‘It should have been 2-0 or 3-0. We conceded a goal which I don’t understand why it stood. He controlled it with his hand.

‘In the moment when they scored, it was clear that VAR would not allow this goal to stand. We were not well positioned in that moment, too open and allowed them the counter, we should have won the game.

‘Anthony Elanga, anyone can imagine how he us, he is shattered and absolutely disappointed. It was the eighth penalty which had all converted.’

Boro boss Wilder added: ‘We are delighted, the opposition will be wondering how they did not progress, it is the magic of the cup, we rode our luck, took our chances and took it to a shootout.

‘You can’t do anything when it goes to penalties, you just hope they are positive and they took a fabulous approach. You give yourself an opportunity to witness scenes like tonight, 10,000 fans coming down the road and going away happy.

‘Dean Henderson is a good goalkeeper, I know he is about and saved a few penalties when we worked together but a fabulous night for the football club and why fans around the world enjoy the FA Cup.

‘You cannot get any better than winning at Old Trafford on a Friday night.’
