It comes just a day after Tottenham star Eric Dier amazingly confronted a supporter after his brother Patrick made an exception to the midfielder who was insulted.
In the video posted on Twitter, a fan was heard who pointed out that Lingard, who had been fighting for form since the 2018 World Cup, had failed last year to register one goal or assist United at one of the various verbal attacks on the player.
Sportsmail has contacted United for comment.

ERIC ANIMAL CONFRONTED FAN
Eric Dier confronted a supporter after getting in a row with his younger brother Patrick after the FA Cup exit from Tottenham against Norwich on Wednesday night.
Dier reacted angrily after he noticed the altercation, which began after his brother made an exception to the midfielder who was insulted, and arched rows of chairs to drag his brother away.
The football association is faced with a dilemma about whether Dier should pay for his shock confrontation with a fan.
Lingard suffered alleged racial abuse along with his teammate Fred from supporters of Manchester City during the United derby victory in December.
Speaking of that incident in the immediate aftermath, Lingard said, “Even this idiot can’t ruin tonight’s sense of shame, it could be the derby, but there’s never a reason to be racist!”
Lingard rarely played for Ole Gunnar Solskjaer in the last few weeks amid a long string of poor performances, but played the full 90 minutes of Thursday night’s FA Cup victory.
The 27-year-old had a hand in the opener of United with repetitions that looked as if Shaw’s volley had been hit from his back, although the goal was eventually awarded to the defender.
Odion Ighalo grabbed the other two when United raced past the championship club to book their place in the quarterfinals of the FA Cup.
