Man Utd boss Ferguson: QPR's Derry deserved his red

Manchester United boss Sir Alex Ferguson says Shaun Derry deserved his red in victory over QPR.

The QPR man was sent off and Wayne Rooney's penalty and a late goal from Paul Scholes sealed the win for United.

Manager Sir Alex Ferguson said: "I'm happy we've won. There are six left now. Hopefully we can run it out. Ashley was a yard offside so I can understand Mark (Hughes) being angry.

"Derry had a little tug on Ashley. Not a great deal but enough to get us a penalty kick. Being the last defender, he had to be sent off."
