On his side’s performance, Rice said the Irons side fought excellently before their late undoing, having matched United stride for stride up until Rashford’s late winner.
He added: “We’re gutted. It was a real kick in the teeth. We fought so well. There was very little in the game, so I think a draw would have probably been a fair result.
“We’re such a good counter-attacking side, and even when it was going to the latter stages of the game, we still had the energy to get forward.
“To end like that and get counter-attacked on in the last 30 seconds, and to concede a goal, was a real kick in the teeth.”
