Calderwood hails Man Utd pair Giggs, Scholes

Aberdeen boss Jimmy Calderwood was full of praise for Manchester United's senior players after yesterday's 2-0 friendly defeat.

A first-half penalty from Michael Carrick and a Wayne Rooney header after the break demonstrated the superiority of the visitors who were never in any trouble.

Afterwards Calderwood pinpointed the talents of Scholes and Giggs in particular, saying: "It was a worthwhile exercise and a wonderful learning process for our players.

"You could see the quality of the United players.

"When you see older players like Paul Scholes and Ryan Giggs, their attitude, hunger, touch and vision - it was fabulous."
