Barcelona attacker Eidur Gudjohnsen rates Manchester United's Paul Scholes as a bigger threat than Cristiano Ronaldo ahead of Wednesday's Champions League semi.

The match has been billed as a clash between Lionel Messi and Ronaldo, but Gudjohnsen counters: "It's not about these two players. If it was we could put them in a boxing ring and let them fight it out.

"I'm more of an admirer of Paul Scholes than I am of Ronaldo. Ronaldo is a fantastic player but he has 10 other great players around him each week.

"Scholes is one of the most complete footballers I've ever seen. His one-touch play is phenomenal. Whenever I have played against him I never felt I could get close to him."
