United veteran Paul Scholes scored the only goal of the match at the Molineux.
“I think some people were watching through rose-tinted spectacles,” McCarthy commented on Ferguson’s claims that United deserved their three points.
“He thought United deserved to win? That is great propaganda.”
Wolves youngster Sam Vokes missed a great opportunity in second half stoppage-time.
“Sam would have expected to score that goal from the position he was in,” he added. “He works very hard on that part of his game.
“As long as we have breath we will carry on fighting and you never know, he could be the one who gets the goal to keep us up.”
