Marcus Rashford was named the Sir Matt Busby Player of the Year and also Players' Player of the Year at Manchester United's annual awards night on Monday.

The first Academy graduate to win our fan-voted accolade since 1998, Marcus was gracious in accepting two trophies on stage, expressing the 'immense pride' he felt at being the most popular choice of the fans and his team-mates.

Following his double award win, our no.10 conducted an interview with club media, in which he revealed which Reds he voted for in the Players' Player of the Year poll.

Marcus Rashford reveals where he'll keep the silverware from his Player of the Year double win...

"I think I nominated two people," he began. "I don't know if I'm allowed to do that [laughs]."

"I voted for Case [Casemiro] and Bruno [Fernandes]. I feel like Case has done an amazing job since coming in and he has made us a lot more solid.

"He's one of the reasons why David [De Gea] managed to win the Golden Glove, and we were just a lot more solid in the midfield.

"That freed the likes of people like Bruno and [Christian] Eriksen, who I thought has had a tremendous season as well, to play their football."

Rashford was the player who was ultimately picked out by his team-mates, and he was presented with the award by club captain Harry Maguire.

"Marcus has obviously had an exceptional year," said Maguire. "He is a big part of the dressing room, he's a top professional and this season he proved he can play at the highest level.

 "When we need him, he scores goals. I just wish and hope on Saturday [in the Emirates FA Cup final] he produces again."
