Manchester United star Jesse Lingard has revealed exactly where his trademark J-L hand celebration came from.

He revealed how help from team-mate Marcus Rashford saw him come up with the hand signal, which supporters took some time to recognise was his initials.

The 26-year-old has missed United's last few games with a hamstring injury suffered against Liverpool on February 24 but is nearing a first-team return.

Someone might want to speak up and they might be afraid and stuff like that, so it's more about people being themselves and standing up for what they know."

"We were trying loads of things and I was trying to make a J and an L. "I said if I score, I'll do it and obviously I scored that day and I did it but people were kind of like: 'What's he doing?'
