Fergie rejects Scholes claims

Manchester United manager Sir Alex Ferguson has rejected claims that Paul Scholes has decided to retire at the end of the season.

It was reported on Friday morning that 38-year-old midfielder Scholes has told friends he will be quitting the game for a second time next summer. However Ferguson believes the former England international, who was persuaded to come out of a short-lived retirement at the start of the year, would have let him know of any such plans.

Ferguson said: "I would be surprised if Paul had spoken to someone without speaking to me - and he hasn't - so we can dismiss that."
