Man Utd veteran Scholes shrugs off Shearer praise

Manchester United ace Paul Scholes has shrugged off the latest round of praise coming his way.

Amongst those paying tribute to Scholes this week has been Alan Shearer, who is not alone in believing the Salford-born star to be the most influential player of his generation.

It is almost amusing the way Scholes deals with such high praise.

"I try to ignore the plaudits," he said.

"It is nice for people to say positive things but I just put it to one side and concentrate on the next game."
