    Richard Keys has launched a scathing attack on Erik ten Hag following Manchester United's 7-0 demolition at the hands of arch-rivals Liverpool on Sunday.

    The disgraced former Sky Sports presenter criticised the Dutchman's "don't blame me" act in his post-match interview, slammed him for continually picking "bang ordinary" Wout Weghorst, and, in the pick of the bunch, branded him 'Seven Hag' – a jibe so mind-numbingly cringeworthy that we can't help but applaud it.

    Writing on his blog, Keys said: "It’s tempting to weigh in [on United] like everybody else but I’m not going to," before immediately weighing on United.

    "A quick word on the manager. He strikes me as very keen to take credit when things go well, but it's always somebody else's fault when they don't. This time his players were 'unprofessional' and 'didn't stick to the plan'. In other words – don't blame me guv'," he wrote.

    'I'd have rather heard him say 'it's a one-off. It won't happen again' … take it on the chin as a collective. He's the one complaining that United 'didn't stick together' but he's distancing himself from it."

    Keys then talked down the progress Carabao Cup winners United had made under Ten Hag over the last few months, insisting his side are "NOT the real deal" and that they've been "getting away with a lot recently".

    Seeing as he's fond of nicknames, think of one for Richard Keys and put in the comments section below.

    "There is no question that Seven Hag (I know, but it’s funny) has been making progress, but it’s been nowhere near as much as has been hyped. Talk of quadruples was nonsense. Absolute nonsense," he added.

    Keys then turned his attention to Weghorst, labelling the Dutch striker "the worst player I’ve ever seen in a United jersey" – before giving the lamest nickname in the history of words a painfully-unwanted encore.

    "He’s a bang ordinary No 9, who couldn’t get in a struggling Burnley team, but what on earth possesses Seven Hag to think he’s a sumptuous 10? He’s not a 'pressing monster'. He doesn’t 'make runs' because he can’t run."

    To make matters worse for boyhood Liverpool fan Weghorst, United fans are now demanding he be sacked after footage emerged on social media of him tapping the 'This is Anfield' sign ahead Sunday's demolition defeat.

    Wout Wegworst, anyone? We'll let you have that free of charge, Richard.
