Manchester United boss Sir Alex Ferguson insists he is in no rush to discuss the future with Paul Scholes.

Scholes turned 38 on Friday, but is still well capable of holding his own in the top flight - after coming out of retirement mid-way through last season.

Ferguson has used the former England international sparingly this season, but feels his passing abilities are still as sharp as ever and will talk about the future at a later date.

"It is not a time to make a judgment on that," said Ferguson. "Paul will know himself. He still has the desire to play. That has not stopped.

"He is still the best passer of the ball in the country. It is amazing.

"He has had one or two injuries over the years, quit last summer and came back.

"He made a fantastic contribution in the second half of the season and I just think he should keep doing what he is doing.

"He will sort the rest out himself."
