Marcos Rojo celebrates with Barcelona shirt on

Manchester United defender Marcos Rojo produced a crazy celebration after watching his former side Estudiantes secure a victory over Gimnasia La Plata in the Primera Division this past weekend. 

The Argentine international, who signed for the Red Devils this past summer, was in fact donning a Barcelona shirt as he appeared to lose the plot after Ezequiel Cerutti completed the scoring from the spot in a 3-1 victory for Estudiantes.

Considering he's currently starring at Manchester United, it was certainly an interesting piece of clothing from the versatile defender, but it's unlikely that it will cause too much controversy in the ranks at Old Trafford. 

And you certainly can't blame him for celebrating the goal in style as he was involved in the setup at Estudiantes for nine years, between the ages of 9 and 20. 

Fans of the Red Devils will no doubt be hoping that the defensive ace shows as much passion for the club over the coming weeks and months of the season. 

Rojo, of course, played a key role for the side in their last outing as the Red Devils secured all three points against Sunderland on Saturday afternoon. The Argentine ace has featured on a regular basis for Louis van Gaal's side of late, and is now an integral member of the squad. 

In fact, the defender will be hoping to feature once again as the Red Devils travel to St James' Park to take on Newcastle United tomorrow evening. Van Gaal's side will be determined to secure all three points as they attempt to maintain their challenge for Champions League places. 

Best signing 

Manchester United may well have splashed the cash on an array of attacking talent last summer, but Rojo has been the club's most consistent signing this term.

While the likes of Angel di Maria, Radamel Falcao and Co. have struggled for form on English soil, the Argentine international has gone from strength-to-strength in Manchester. 

There's no doubt about it, Rojo has an extremely bright future at the club regime, but must continue to improve under the guidance of Van Gaal. He must, however, continue to prove his credentials over the coming months and help United stay in the top four places in England's elite division.
