Watch: Brad Jones concedes the weakest own goal vs Man United

Poor old Brad Jones, he never quite made the grade at Liverpool.

After leaving Anfield in 2015, the 34-year-old looked as though he would see his career go into free fall  as he spent short stints with the likes of Derby, Bradford and NEC in the Netherlands.

So what a thrill it must have been to be picked up by Dutch giants Feyenoord at the start of the season and be thrust into the squad in time to take part in a juicy Europa League tie against Manchester United.

However, it didn't quite work out so well for him, as not only did he concede four goals while his team mates gave no reply, one of them was all his fault.

Already 2-0 down, Zlatan Ibrahimovic was played into the box out on the left, but seemingly played into no mans land as he was well marked and had nowhere to go.

The big Swede looked to cut the ball back across the box but instead of finding one of his teammates he found Jones instead, who let the ball go between his legs and rebound into the net off his leg.

It marked the end of the night for the Dutch club, but not before Jones conceded another to make it 4-0 to United.

But that's not where the misery ends for the Australian, as backlash on social media has hard and fast with many tearing into the lacklustre stopper for his poor showing.

Whether he'll be dropped for this performance remains to be seen, but he won't have done his chances and favours.
