Quiet, unassuming Paul Scholes flexed his ego in the European Super Cup final with his own version of the Hand of God. Unfortunately, Scholes’ volleyball-esque goal would have been chalked off by even the most short-sighted of match officials.

He will now miss a Champions League group game, which has probably got him (and Fergie) thinking that it was not worthwhile.
