Man Utd boss delighted with Scholes form

Manchester United boss Sir Alex Ferguson is delighted with the form of Paul Scholes ahead of tonight's clash with Roma.

Scholes has regained top form after a three-and-a-half-month absence with a knee injury and was influential in Rome.

Asked if the unassuming midfielder would be handed the armband, Ferguson quipped: "Paul would regard that as punishment!

He added: "It took him a few weeks to get his rhythm back but now his form is fantastic."
