The Sky Sports pundit said it was sad to watch United’s pitiful performance at Anfield, saying he now feels sorry for the club.
He slammed the negative attitude of the team and its tendency to give up too easily.
Keane said on Sky Sports’ coverage of the match: “There’s no team at Manchester United, When the going gets tough or they’re under the cosh they’re out of it.
“This United team is well short of talent… they’re not as talented as they think.
“Jesse Lingard’s come on to try and save United, Lingard should have left United two years ago.
“Rashford played like a child up-front, OK he wasn’t getting service but the one or two bits he got in the first half when you think ‘oh you’re in on goal…’ a poor touch.”
“The last goal Maguire’s passing and his defending, it’s not acceptable, not good enough for United.”
Keane has been disgusted by the lack of effort the United team have displayed in recent weeks, suggesting the players, staff and even manager have already switched off.
He also accused the United players of giving soundbites in interviews after Bruno Fernandes offered up another grovelling apology.
He added: “They’ve already left the building, they’re gone, particularly the lads whose contracts are up, they’ve already left, you can tell with their performances.
“You see it at Everton even the manager, the staff, they’re on their holidays they’ve switched off.
“We come here tonight to Anfield, what do you think’s going to happen? They don’t turn up. They lose 4-0 and shake hands and then give interviews afterwards – it’s soundbites.
“You should be ashamed of your life. They should be hiding.”
Keane also questioned the culture at the club and why a number of players, including Paul Pogba and Edinson Cavani, want to leave the club.
The former midfielder believes something must be wrong if some United stars are eager to leave one of the biggest clubs in the world.
Keane said: “This team is not even likeable there’s no soul with this team, you don’t warm to them.

“I know it’s difficult for players to give interviews but it’s very robotic. There’s no emotion – they’re talking about the badge and the pride of United.
“I’d love to know what’s going on at the training ground, what’s the culture with the players, what’s the culture with the young players, who’s helping these young lads along.
“Graeme [Souness] makes the point, I’ve never heard so many people wanting to leave United.
“Before when I played for them you’d be dreading thinking you might be sold but now it’s like everyone wants to get out the door.
“They can’t get out quick enough – at Manchester United?”
