TalkSport's Stan Collymore has revealed that he has been told by a Manchester United staff member that the package found at Old Trafford had a phone connected to a pipe and wires in it.
The Red Devils' Premier League fixture against Bournemouth had to be abandoned earlier today after the discovery of a package at the Theatre of Dreams.
The game was initially delayed for 45 minutes but was subsequently abandoned for safety reasons.

Now, then, Collymore has taken to social media to update his followers with the information that he is being fed.
The former Liverpool player has also claimed that the man who found the package is 'in shock'.
Collymore tweeted: "Unconfirmed reports from Old Trafford of more than one package. Sniffer dogs on site.
"Old Trafford employee text me to say 'someone tried to do something in the 100 club, sniffer dogs everywhere, looking for second package.'
"Text. Package was a phone attached to pipe with wires hanging from it”. Found by customer in toilet. From guy who found it.
"BREAKING. Source is 100% correct. Man is in shock. Phone connected to pipe and wires in Old Trafford toilet.
"BREAKING. Military imminent at Old Trafford."
News will, of course, continue to filter through, but Collymore's claim is most definitely a worrying one.
It's certainly not surprising that the game was abandoned as there's absolutely no point in taking any risks. It remains to be seen as to when the game will be rescheduled.
