OLE GUNNAR SOLSKJAER stopped to sign autographs for fans after his Manchester United side were thrashed 5-0 by Liverpool.
The Norwegian oversaw a humiliating performance at Old Trafford, with their rivals from Merseyside repeatedly tearing the Red Devils apart.

But after the match, he still made time for loyal fans.

According to Associated Press reporter Rob Harris, Solskjaer spent ten minutes in the car park with supporters.
He also revealed that 'only support' was heard for the former striker – with fans not resorting to abuse after the 5-0 defeat.

"We weren't good enough individually or as a team. You can't give a team like Liverpool those chances and unfortunately, we did.
"The whole performance wasn't good enough, that's for sure. We have created openings, they have had chances, they have been clinical and we did not take our chances early on. Then the third goal is the one that decided the game.
"It's mine [responsibly for the loss] – that's it. The coaching staff are brilliant and I choose the way we approach the game and today, we weren't clinical enough going forward.
"There were spaces for both teams and when you give good players spaces, they score."
Harry Maguire and Cristiano Ronaldo issued grovelling apologies to supporters after the match.
While Paul Scholes claimed that Paul Pogba should never play for United again after his red card.
Pundit Gary Neville ripped into his former side for 'capitulating' – and admitted the pressure on Solskjaer is 'intolerable'.
The United manager admitted that his team have hit 'rock bottom' – but refused to quit his job at the Theatre of Dreams.
