The Germany international made his long-awaited return from injury for Thursday night’s Europa League last-16 clash at Anfield.
Schweinsteiger was a second-half substitute as Louis van Gaal’s side suffered a 2-0 defeat by their bitter rivals Liverpool.
The World Cup winner had been sidelined for over two months with a knee injury which he suffered against Sheffield United in December.
Schweinsteiger earned brownie points with the Bayern fans and players after his Twitter message for Bayern defender Holger Badstuber.
