WATCH: Paul Scholes rants after Liverpool's victory over Manchester United

Liverpool's 2-0 win against Manchester United in the first leg of the clubs Europa League tie has everyone talking. Of course the media and fans are dissecting every single minute of the match, but even one of United's most recognizable legends is making his feelings known.

After the match that saw Liverpool dominate their hated rivals, former Manchester United midfielder, Paul Scholes, was on post-match TV coverage as an analyst. He laid into his former team after their uninspired performance at Anfield. He criticized their lack of energy and lackadaisical play, even going as far as saying that Adam Lallana, who enjoyed himself on the night with some cheeky skills and flicks, should've been taken out by United players for showboating.

It's quite clear that Manchester United are not the same team they used to be. Their mystique of being one of the best clubs in the world is long gone. Their former players being frustrated in the media is fine, as is their right, but it's not going to help them regain their form anytime soon.
