Paul Scholes reaches career high in response to Robbie Savage

In his playing days Paul Scholes was renowned as someone very familiar with receiving a yellow card or two and it seems his misdemeanours have overlapped into his punditry career.

The former Manchester United and England midfielder has now taken his place behind the microphone, working for both BT Sport and ITV, and is now more known for his acerbic observations.

Scholes is clearly not afraid to upset people with his withering assessments - just ask Jack Wilshere or Louis van Gaal - and it would seem that even the broadcasting colleagues of the Manchester United legend are not immune from his sharp tongue.

It would seem Scholes doesn't think much of fellow pundit Robbie Savage, a former Manchester United youth team colleague, having been caught calling referring to him in less than complimentary terns during a live live BT Sport broadcast.

During an airing of Fletch & Sav following Liverpool's defeat of Tottenham on Tuesday, Scholes was seen to call Savage a "knobhead" while the camera was still on him. It was probably the peak of Scholes' punditry career so far.

But Savage didn't seem too heartbroken saying "But…but…there's nothing on my head! That's impossible Scholesy! Can't we be mates forever, yeh?"

To be fair, the Welshman probably has worse things said and written about him on a daily basis.
