Rio Ferdinand has praised Paul Scholes for the way in which he has returned for Manchester United.

Scholes scored against Bolton on Saturday in his first Premier League appearance since re-signing for the club.

Ferdinand said: "Only a handful of players could do it.

"Iniesta, Xavi, Messi - they're the type of players who look as though they could play football at the drop of a hat at the top level. It's natural to them."

Manchester United are currently second in the Premier League.
