Sir Alex Ferguson says Ruud van Nistelrooy is up there with Manchester United goalscoring greats.

Ferguson: ‘Ruud deserves to be rated alongside those types of player. Given the way defences and organisation have improved, and the speed the game is played at now, 150 goals is an incredible achievement.

‘Ruud’s ability to create space in the box is incredible, and the great thing is he still has years in front of him.’
