Manchester United boss David Moyes says he wants to maintain the club's close ties with Northern Ireland.

Moyes paid tribute today to former United striker David Healy, who has just announced his retirement.

"I have a lot of fondness for boys from Northern Ireland because my mother was from there," Moyes said.

"He went on to be one of that country's greats.

"In a period when Northern Irish football was just dropping, he was the one who kept it going because he was able to get them a goal in big games.

"His goals per game ratio was remarkable."
