Man Utd legend Scholes: How I reacted to anti-Glazer protests...

Manchester United legend Paul Scholes has spoken of the anti-Glazer protests that sparked late in his career.

Scholes says he had no interest in getting involved with supporters' green and gold protests against the Glazer family five years ago.

"I cannot remember a single occasion when the takeover was discussed by the manager, Sir Alex Ferguson, with us players," Scholes said in his Independent column.

"We took our lead from him. If he was comfortable with the change and happy with the way the owners were treating the club, then we were too.

"I know that there are many supporters who are not happy with the Glazers. As players, I have to say that within Carrington, our training ground, and at Old Trafford, nothing changed for us in May 2005."
