MANCHESTER UNITED’s ‘bitter’ players have been left out by Ralf Rangnick’s selection policy, reports claim.
In January, SunSport revealed that there was a rift in the dressing room at Old Trafford.
Some stars feel that some senior teammates have too much influence over interim boss Rangnick.
According to MEN, some subs are feeling frustrated because they are constantly being dropped from the team.
One United star is even said to have called the team-mate a ‘teacher’s pet’ for his consistent appearances – while another JEALOUS of a Red Devils teammate.
One player who is said to be ‘concerned’ about his situation is Marcus Rashford.
The striker was left on the bench in yesterday’s 4-1 defeat of Manchester City – despite the absences of Edinson Cavani and Cristiano Ronaldo.
Rashford, 24, is inferior to Anthony Elanga in the order of surgery and has only started 2 of the last 11 Prem matches.

Eric Bailly is said to have been irritated by his lack of action – having even fallen behind Phil Jones in pecking order in recent weeks.
The Ivorian signed a new contract last summer, but has only featured in four Premier League games this season.
He feels that he deserves more opportunities than those currently selected.
The 27-year-old was on the bench in yesterday’s match, after Raphael Varane tested positive for Covid-19.
Diogo Dalot initially appeared to be a big winner from Rangnick’s appointment, starting eight straight games under the German.
But he has been ‘surprised’ at his sudden drop in recent games, after Aaron Wan-Bissaka returned in a 4-2 win over Leeds.
Wan-Bissaka has since started matches back at Watford and Man City, while Victor Lindelof was selected at right-back against Atletico Madrid.
The fourth United player to upset was Dean Henderson.
The England international has found it difficult to make just three appearances this season and is set to leave Old Trafford permanently this summer ahead of the World Cup in Qatar at the end of the year.
