Manchester United fan lapped up the acclaim of the Old Trafford faithful at half time during Manchester United's clash with Swansea but his attire got as much reaction as his trophy.

The 25-year-old, who added the US PGA Championship to his Open Championship triumph last week, described the chance to parade the Open Championship winning trophy at Old Trafford as a "great thrill" earlier this week.

In an interview with BT Sport before the game, McIlroy said he thinks United have what it takes to win the Premier League in Van Gaal's first season in charge.

Here is some of the best reaction to his appearance on twitter:
