GRUMPY Roy Keane slammed "immature kid" Marcus Rashford for "smiling too much" before Manchester United's draw with Chelsea.
The Red Devils striker, 24, was clearly in a positive mood before kick-off at Old Trafford last night.
And despite not scoring January 22, his happy face suggested he is still enjoying himself right now.
But ex-United captain Keane was having none of it, insisting the warm-up is the preparation for war with smiling reserved for goals or impressing the fans only.
Speaking on Sky Sports, Keane said: "Every time I see Marcus getting warmed up, he’s always smiling.
"I don’t like players smiling too much. You smile when you do score, when you do something.

"Every time I see him in the warm-up he’s laughing or smiling. You’re going to war.
"You’re fighting for your future, start smiling when you score a goal, or you do something that affects the game, or gets people off their seats.
"Laughing all the time in a warm-up… come on."
Rashford started on the wing against Chelsea and lasted 79 minutes.

But again he struggled to make much of an impact with no shots, no key passes and no tackles.
He completed just 13 passes, lost the ball ten times and won one of his five duels before being taken off for Juan Mata.

But Keane had plenty more to say on Rashford.
Asked what more he wanted to see from the England forward, the Irishman added: "A bit more courage from him, we’ve not seen enough of it.
"His performances… he’s not been consistent, he’s not worked hard enough, he’s not been brave in terms of taking people on, he’s not mixed his game up well enough in terms of running in behind.

"He’s now 24 years of age, he’s got to show more maturity, be more consistent, that’s the key to play at any big club.
"He’s got to do a lot more, I’m really frustrated with him."
Keane continued: "I think you’re always in a sense playing for your future.
"You’re talking about a reaction from the manager, as if you need loads of setbacks to get a reaction. The key is to do it week win, week out.
"What we said when he first burst on to the scene, he affects games, he doesn’t affect games anymore. He does very little.
