Man Utd 'scrap end of season awards as stars are too embarrassed to attend' following shocking campaign

MANCHESTER UNITED have reportedly CANCELLED their end of season awards ceremony after a request from the players.

The Red Devils will post their worst-ever Premier League points tally regardless of Sunday's result at Crystal Palace.

And their shocking season meant United stars were too embarrassed for the awards night to go ahead, according to the Mirror.

Each year the club host a glitzy end-of-season do to recognise the best performers over the course of the season from both the first-team and the academy.

The black-tie event held at Old Trafford has occupied a regular spot on the calendar during the final two weeks of the season for the last 10 years.

It's claimed Ralf Rangnick's stars felt awkward about the prospect of the event due to their dismal performances on the pitch.

As a result club chiefs decided to axe the awards night.

Bruno Fernandes has won the Sir Matt Busby Player of the Year for the last two years on the bounce, while Luke Shaw scooped United Players' Player of the Year last season.

The Red Devils are still recoiling from the 4-0 thumping at the hands of Brighton earlier this month.
