MANCHESTER UNITED legend Roy Keane says Marcus Rashford looked ‘out of place’ on the pitch as the striker struggled to get back in shape.
Rashford, 24, missed the team’s dramatic draw with Aston Villa on Saturday due to injury.
But his recent performances remain a hot topic as Keane appears as a pundit on Sky Sports for the Villa Park clash.
And the outspoken Reds legend didn’t hold back when he said ‘the lights were on but no one was home’ to the England attacker.
Keane said: “What happened with Rashford? Man Utd have to look closely, that’s part of the responsibility when you get to work with young, good players.
“He’s done incredible things over the last few years, amazing, on and off the pitch, but clearly something is missing.
“I looked at it on Monday night, the lights were on but no one was home. The child looked lost.
“Sometimes with young players it’s confidence. It could be anything on the pitch, it could be something off the pitch.”

The tough Irish midfielder questioned the culture and mentality at Old Trafford.
“For me, there’s something missing at Manchester United, there are so many loose ends,” Keane said.
“Are these young players – Sancho, Rashford and Greenwood – still looking at some senior players?
The lights were on but no one was at home. The child looks lost.
“You’re hoping the senior players are setting a good example. Maybe not all and maybe some of these young players aren’t quick to do a little more after that, and these are all good details. the best you have to improve.
“If the culture at Manchester United doesn’t match, in terms of the pace of training, the pace, the attitude of the people, the way they talk to the staff, if that’s not the case, you’ll notice it.”
The Red Devils are in 7th place in the Premier League table, 5 points behind a place in the Champions League.
On Saturday night, United’s culture came into focus again as boss Ralf Rangnick sensationally revealed that Anthony Martial refuses to take part in clash with Villa.
