The club must now make "major improvement" before it receives a more positive rating, the Food Standards Agency (FSA) has said.

A spokesperson for Trafford Council said: "We can confirm that the hygiene rating for Old Trafford (Manchester United) has been downgraded from five to one.

"This follows a food hygiene investigation following an incident where undercooked food was served at an event on November 21."

Manchester United have said they will appeal the rating, MailOnline reports.
