Rangnick leaves United

Manchester United have confirmed that Ralf Rangnick will not be staying on in a planned consultancy role at the club following his spell as caretaker manager.

Rangnick, 63, took charge of the club on an interim basis last December, initially only accepting the role if he was offered a future beyond his temporary spell in charge of the first team.

Garner promoted to Premier League

James Garner helped Nottingham Forest end their 23-year absence from the Premier League by playing a key role in their 1-0 victory over Huddersfield Town in the Championship play-off final at Wembley on Sunday afternoon.

The youngster United – who have spent the duration of this season on loan at the club City Ground – played a key role in helping Steve Cooper’s side win on their first visit to Wembley since losing to United in the the League Cup final in 1992. The central midfielder provided the assist for the game’s only goal, his cross in the penalty area being returned home by Huddersfield defender Levi Colwill for a goal against his team.

Garner was aiming to go for his midfield partner Ryan Yates but his cross was driven home by Colwill before the Forest academy graduate had a chance to touch the ball. The young United had already come close to claiming an assist, seeing his brilliant cross headed just wide by Yates.
