Sir Bobby Charlton has labelled the return of Manchester United "dinosaur" Paul Scholes as one of the best bits of news ever.

If Scholes' retirement U-turn last week at the age of 37 was remarkable, that he should score on his return to Sir Alex Ferguson's starting line-up in Saturday's 3-0 win over Bolton was truly amazing, considering he found the net once in 33 appearances last season.

And Charlton believes Scholes' comeback could turn out to be crucial, telling United Review: "I have been more upbeat since I heard about Paul Scholes returning to the squad. It is one of the best pieces of news I have ever had."
