Wilkins said after United’s win over Tottenham on Sunday: “His performance was a masterclass.
“I think the little fella has been outstanding all season. For me, he’s been the best player in the Premiership by a mile.
“I know the likes of Ronaldo provide us with great entertainment, but Scholes is a class apart. Everything he does is so simple, he’s always available for a pass and he’ll always pop up and score you a goal.
“I think he might have to start writing a Player of the Year speech. In my opinion, he should get it.”
