Man Utd boss Ferguson: Scholes, Ferdinand ready for Liverpool

Manchester United boss Sir Alex Ferguson says Paul Scholes and Rio Ferdinand will be fit for their clash at Liverpool.

Manchester United boss Sir Alex Ferguson says Paul Scholes and Rio Ferdinand will be fit for their clash at Liverpool.

Both players were substituted early in last night's 1-0 Champions League win at CSKA Moscow.

But at the post-match media conference, Ferguson was quick to reassure any concerns over the fitness of Ferdinand and Scholes. He said it was purely a precaution to make sure they were well rested for Sunday.

He said: "I took Rio off as a precaution to make him available for Sunday and it was the same with Paul Scholes. I was always going to do that. It was also important that Nemanja Vidic played for a whole game to prepare him."
