Hundreds of Manchester United fans have gathered outside Old Trafford this afternoon to protest against the owners.

Supporters carrying banners, along with green and yellow smoke bombs, displayed their anger at the Glazer family.

It follows the debacle of the European Super League earlier this week. Joel Glazer had been named European Super League vice-chairman when the announcement was made, but he apologised on Wednesday in a letter to Manchester United fans after the club pulled out of the plans the day before.
