Man Utd hero Rooney hails teammate Scholes

He said: “I see him do it every day in training. He’s brilliant. He is a joy to play with, a genius.

“It’s a great feeling. It was a difficult match but when it got late we kept going. We knew the victory would make it a little bit easier for the away leg.

“And to get a goal in the last minute is a great feeling.

“It was fantastic. At 2-1 behind at half-time against a very good Milan team, we knew it would be difficult to get the win. The manager told us too keep pushing, keep going and we’ll get the goals, and we did.”
