    We asked for your views after Manchester United's 2-0 friendly win over Rangers.

    Here are some of your responses:

    David: Much improved on the Rosenborg game. Leny Yoro looks to be a steal - he has great timing and can move forward. Harry Amass looked good, as did Amad Diallo. A few first-team players looking over their shoulders now.

    Steve: A very positive performance from United's second string. Always looking to play forward and get on the front foot. It is refreshing to see United aggressive in the transfer market and positive on the pitch. We haven't seen this positivity for years.

    Christine: Diallo is going to be world class. Great to see so many young players coming through the ranks and giving fantastic performances, making sure they are giving themselves a chance of playing when the season starts. So many good things to look forward to.

    Neil: Food for thought. Liked the dig and hunger shown - particularly by the young guys. Jadon Sancho clearly benefited from his German stint and hopefully both player and boss bury their differences as he is a class act.

    Paul: Nice to see some youngsters coming through. Toby Collyer is a workhorse and hopefully he can break through this year. Still some frailty at the back, which was saved by Rangers' lack of finishing. Yoro looked calm with some nice passing, so hopefully a good addition to the squad.

    Ruzzzle: No Victor Lindelof or Antony despite both being in full training last week shows where their futures may lie. The game itself was a step up in performance from Rosenborg. Good to see Yoro and Sancho was also like a new signing. Still a lot of players to come back into the side, but Diallo and Mason Mount did their chances no harm.

    Arifur: Pre-season or not, it was a good game. It seemed like United had control and were confident on the ball. Still some little moments of inconsistency but, other than that, a great win. Diallo was superb and Yoro showed a sublime passing range and composure on the ball.

    Dougie: Let's not get carried away here. This was an easy win - against the second best team in the Scottish Premiership. You could buy the club for the price of Scott McTominay.
