Paul Scholes has been keeping himself busy as a temporary United scout during his recovery from an eye complaint.

The midfielder is unavailable for the remainder of the campaign after being diagnosed with blurred vision earlier in the year.

Since making a return to light training, the 31-year-old has been spotted at a number of different grounds around the country including Bolton's Reebok Stadium.

Some of the tabloids have suggested that Sir Alex had asked Scholes to compile reports on potential summer transfer targets, but the United manager revealed otherwise.

"According to some of the papers he's been recommending lots of players to us," joked Sir Alex. "We have to figure what game he's going to watch this weekend!

"What he's really been doing is watching a lot of the lads who we've got out on loan and he's enjoying it.

Its kinda funny that Scholesy has been sent out to watch players as the thing that is keeping him out is his current poor/blurred vision. How much could the bloke possibly see from the stands if he isn't able to see the players on the field?

Irony is a sl*t!

Haha, I think his vision is alright now, it's just that the team doesn't wanna take any chances. If he gets another knock in his head, it will be a disaster.

Yeah, this is why Scholes hasn't been playing, as a precaution more than anything as if he did take another knock it could do him permanent damage. Given he is not one to court publicity, perhaps is a clue as to what he will do when he finishes playing. Don't think he would want to move into management or the media so something less high profile that keeps him involved in football like scouting would probably suit him down to the ground.
