Manchester United have rejected a fan theory about how supporters got inside Old Trafford during Sunday's protest.

United's Premier League match against Liverpool was postponed after around 200 fans managed to get inside the stadium to protest against the club's owners.

Speculation on social media suggested fans may have been able to gain access to Old Trafford because a gate was opened from the inside by staff.

Fans were protesting against the Glazer family, who own the club, following the failed attempt to found the controversial European Super League last month.

"Manchester United's full statement on the club website read:"Following events yesterday, while many fans wanted to exercise their right to protest and express their opinion peacefully, some were intent on disrupting the team's preparation and the game itself, as evidenced by activity at the Lowry Hotel and at the stadium.

"The majority of our fans have and will condemn criminal damage, along with any violence towards club staff, police or other fans, and these now become a police matter. The club has no desire to see peaceful protestors punished, but will work with the police to identify those involved in criminal activity, and will also issue its own sanctions to any season ticket holder or member identified, per the published sanctions policy."

"We remain committed to dialogue and engagement with our fans through the Fans Forum and other appropriate channels."
