Bolton's Nolan happy with admiration of Man Utd boss Ferguson

Bolton Wanderers captain Kevin Nolan admits he revels in the admiration coming from Manchester United manager Sir Alex Ferguson.

Ferguson once said he would love to sign the Scouser - if only to stop him scoring against his team.

In 2001 Nolan, 25, found the net as Bolton won 2-1 at Old Trafford. And he repeated the trick with the winner in 2002.

He said: "I try to give my best every week but I've been fortunate to get chances against United - and I've taken them.

"It's great to be named as a player that Sir Alex is looking at but I've always been dedicated to Bolton."
