Charlie has been in League One action for Forest GreenRex
He made one senior appearance for the Red Devils, prior to going out on loan in January.
Savage joined up with League One side Forest Green Rovers, managed by former Prem hardman Duncan Ferguson.
Charlie plays as a defensive midfielder, a chip off the old block in that regard.
And in his fifth appearance for Rovers, he has managed to net his first goal.
Just 12 minutes into Forest Green’s clash with Bristol Rovers, Savage rifled a left-footed effort into the roof of the net.
Dad Robbie learned of the goal while appearing on BT Sport Score.
While viewers were being given an update from Leicester’s clash with Chelsea, Savage Sr yelped with excitement.
Asked what had happened, Robbie beamed: “My boy scored!”
He threw his fists into the air in pure elation and repeated: “My boy!”
The goal was Savage’s first senior strike in six appearances – five for Forest Green and one for Man United.
It put his loan side 1-0 up on the day, but unfortunately the 12th minute lead didn’t last long.
John Marquis equalised for Joey Barton’s side seven minutes later.
And Scott Sinclair made it 2-1 to the Gas on 26 minutes.
Savage made his Man United debut under Ralf Rangnick last season, coming on for the final minute of a 1-1 Champions League draw with Young Boys at Old Trafford.
He was also an unused substitute in their final Prem game of last term.
Prior to joining Forest Green he had been limited to United’s Under-21s side this season – playing 13 times in the PL2 and four games in the EFL Trophy.
