FURIOUS Manchester United supporters let their team have it big time before Cristiano Ronaldo rescued them against Norwich.
The Red Devils threw away a two-goal lead against the basement boys but still managed to claim the points thanks to the Portuguese legend.
After netting both first half goals, the 37-year-old grabbed his hat-trick with a brilliant free-kick late on.
But the mood had turned sour prior to that moment of magic after Kieran Dowell and Teemu Pukki levelled it up with quickfire strikes either side of the break.
A large group of disgruntled fans at Old Trafford started to chant: “You’re not fit to wear the shirt.”
And boo boy favourite Paul Pogba also came in for heavy criticism.

The French World Cup winner, who is out of contract in the summer, was replaced by Juan Mata off the bench just moments before Ronaldo’s winner.
Amid the toxic atmosphere, Pogba’s name was greeted by loud cheers before he was booed as he neared the touchline.
And that was followed afterwards by chants of: “F*** off Pogba!”
On the reaction to Pogba, interim boss Ralf Rangnick said: “I didn’t hear it but we were talking about it with my staff in the locker room.

“I think the fans here are amazing and the support again was great, it couldn’t have been any better.
“And I can fully understand them being frustrated – so are we – and things have stayed peaceful all the time.
“But I don’t think it makes sense to take on and target any individual players. It is a collective responsibility.
“For me it doesn’t make sense and that’s why I will always protect and defend my players.
“I think, by the way, in the first half Paul protected the ball well, because he was not playing in his best position, but without players available, I had to choose.
“And as I said, I can understand the fans in a way but don’t think it makes sense to take on individual players.”
Prior to kick-off, thousands of United fans could be heard singing the vile chant “Joe Glazer's gonna die” as they marched through the streets calling for the owners and board to leave the club.
The protest continued inside the Theatre of Dreams, with some fans refusing to take their seats until the 17th minute – marking one minute for every year of Glazer ownership.
The Old Trafford protest came just one day after a handful of fans turned up at United’s Carrington training ground, demanding the Glazer family sell up.
The supporters want to see a major restructuring at board level in a bid to begin improving results on the pitch.
And one fan told The Mail: "We just want to highlight what's happening. We want people to know this is not a good club.
"What the transfers do is to make the share price go up or attract sponsors.
"They are not football people. We are not even close. It's a shambles."
