Sir Alex Ferguson has rejected the "over the top" criticism of goalkeeper David de Gea.

Former Manchester United full-back Gary Neville was amongst those who rubbished De Gea's weak punch that which led to Tottenham's injury-time equaliser last weekend. Ex-Liverpool defender Alan Hansen was also critical of the Spain youngster, but Ferguson insists the analysis was wide of the mark.

"It has been over the top. It is always over the top when it comes to criticism here," said the Scot. "You have to listen to some idiots in the game. I am not interested in discussing the criticism because we know it is unfounded."
