Ferguson: Giggs, Scholes Man Utd's greatest ever

Manchester United boss Sir Alex Ferguson says Paul Scholes and Ryan Giggs are the club's two greatest ever players. Both veterans scored in victory at Norwich City yesterday.

Scholes, 37, headed the first and Giggs, 38, grabbed a last-gasp winner on his 900th appearance for the club.

Boss Fergie said: "Scholes and Giggs are the best players this club has ever had. Given the career Ryan has had, to score the winning goal with the last kick of the game... I think he deserved that.

"We could have played him against Ajax on Thursday but this game was more important and I knew we would need all our experienced players and Ryan and Scholesy in particular.

"That experience is really going to help us in the next couple of months.

"We won't get nervous, that's for sure. We're used to being in this situation.

"You saw that when we conceded an equaliser. How did we react? We started playing again and got the winner."
