And Rangnick rang the changes for Wednesday’s Champions League group stage draw against the Swiss giants.
Having already booked their spot as group winners, Rangnick handed starts to numerous fringe players including Juan Mata, Amad Diallo and Jesse Lingard.
Greenwood was also given a rare chance as United’s central striker.
And he repaid Rangnick’s faith with just nine minutes on the clock.
A break from United down the left saw Luke Shaw receive the ball outside the Young Boys’ penalty area.
He swept a great ball across the box to find Greenwood unmarked in the centre.

And it ended up being the perfect shot as it flew into the back of the net, giving United a deserved lead.
However, the likes of Donny van de Beek and Anthony Elanga struggled as Young Boys turned up the heat.
And the Swiss visitors managed to pull one back just before the break through Fabian Rieder.
