Ferdinand: Scholes untouchable at Man Utd

Rio Ferdinand says Manchester United teammate Paul Scholes has never received the hairdryer treatment from manager Sir Alex Ferguson.

Ferdinand, 28, said: "Anyone who says they've not been shouted at other than Paul is probably lying.

"He can't be shouted at, he's too good to be shouted at.

"He doesn't make mistakes - he's just a great player.

"We've got a lot of great players but Paul Scholes is a fantastic footballer.

"You just say 'Paul, you do this' and that's it."

Ferdinand - who admitted he had had the hairdryer treatment a few times - added: "Paul's loved as a footballer by his fellow professionals.

"For him not to have won the PFA Player of the Year or the Football Writers' Player of the Year is a travesty for someone of his talents."
