Fergie: Scholes is one of the best

Published Add your comment

Sir Alex Ferguson has labelled Paul Scholes one of Manchester United's greatest ever players after the veteran midfielder put the Red Devils on their way to a 3-0 win over Bolton at Old Trafford.

A week after his shock retirement U-turn, Scholes scored his first Barclays Premier League goal since August 2010 and his first goal at Old Trafford for almost two years when he turned home Wayne Rooney's cross-shot in first-half stoppage time.

It was the 151st goal of the 37-year-old's career and was more remarkable because Ferguson had told him to sit in midfield and control the play, with the manager admitting: "It was a surprise to see him at the far post."
