MARCUS RASHFORD’S LATE winner for Manchester United away to Hull on Saturday led to some inevitably wild celebrations but one female fan had midfielder Marouane Fellaini to thank after things got slightly out of hand.

Rashford, understandably, charged towards the away support after scoring and was followed by his team-mates.

As United fans rushed forward to embrace the players, a woman was seemingly crushed against the advertising hoarding.

Fellaini spotted her and furiously signalled to stewards that she was in distress.

Ultimately, he went to the woman’s aid himself and pulled her to safety before she was then helped to her feet.

Some United fans were sent sprawling over the hoardings during the crush and it’s thought that one broke a leg during the frantic scenes.
