It wasn’t the first time Lingard was positing videos to Snapchat as he did so when United’s team coach came under attack from West Ham fans last year.
Ferdniand went as far to say he didn’t care enough as players from his time wouldn’t have made those decisions, especially when the team weren’t winning.
Speaking about the situation, Lingard claimed that wasn’t the case.
“Fun plays a massive part in anyone’s life. At least it should do,” he said.
“Not everyone is going to like everything you do, but I’m the type of guy that’s always having a joke and messing around – apart from when it comes to the serious stuff.
“I know when my head has to be on the game. You train hard all week, but in your downtime you should be able to relax with your friends and have some fun.
“People pick up on it and are quick to judge, but I’ve always felt that you can’t really judge anyone unless you speak to them face to face or meet them in real life.
“I spoke to Rio about what he said. We had a discussion about it and we’re fine. I’m just a happy-go-lucky person who does things that make me happy.
“As for the dancing and the goal celebrations, it’s all natural. Mum can dance, dad can dance and my brother owns a dance school in Greece. I don’t go out of my way to practice or anything like that.
“And the important thing is that as soon as I get on the pitch it is all about hard work. I know I have to concentrate on winning.”
He’s helped United with big goals in the FA Cup, EFL Cup and Community Shield over the last two seasons and has been brilliant under Jose Mourinho.
While some of his performances have dipped, it’s clear Lingard has set his heart on improving as a player and having a good time.
