MANCHESTER UNITED fans have slammed Erik ten Hag for dropping Marcus Rashford against Wolves before bringing him on at half-time.
The England star has been in fine goalscoring and netted in the recent victories over Burnley and Nottingham Forest.
As a result, he looked a shoo-in to start at Molineux.
But he was surprisingly on the bench with Erik ten Hag later confirming it was due to disciplinary reasons.
Speaking about Rashford's absence, the Dutchman said: "Internal discipline. No details. Our rules. Now [we] focus on the game.
"He is in very good shape and nobody can play every game."

Why has Marcus Rashford been dropped to the bench for Man Utd’s clash at Wolves?
Despite being dropped, with United drawing 0-0 following an underwhelming first half showing, Rashford was introduced at the break in place to Alejandro Garnacho.
And supporters have been reacting in social media to Ten Hag's decision to bring him on after initially leaving him out.
One said: "Ten Hag would have been better off saying nothing than benching Rashford for disciplinary reasons and then bringing him on after 45 minutes."
Another responded: "How do you discipline Ronaldo then make him captain?

"How do you discipline Rashford then bring him on after 45 mins?"
A third: "Terrible management from Ten Hag. Dropped Rashford only to bring him on at half time. Arteta showed how to deal with these things properly with Aubameyang."
But ultimately, Ten Hag's decision paid off after Rashford put United in front late when he slammed home from close-range.
And had it not been for a VAR-overturned handball, Rashford would have scored twice.
Unfortunately, the ball accidently deflected onto his arm from Jose Sa's save from his first effort and it was ruled out.
Regardless, his goal proved the winner as United held on for a 1-0 victory.
