Paul Scholes has heaped praise on Marcus Rashford for his brilliant form for Manchester United in recent weeks.

The Manchester United teenager has earned plenty of praise for his performances for the Red Devils in recent games and was once again the star of the show as he helped to fire Jose Mourinho’s men to a 2-1 extra-time win over Anderlecht in the Europa League on Thursday night.

Rashford also netted for Manchester United in their 2-0 win over Chelsea at Old Trafford in the Premier League last weekend.

The 19-year-old has earned plenty of new admirers since breaking into the first team at Old Trafford under Louis van Gaal last season.

And Scholes has revealed just why he is such a keen admirer of the teenage forward.

Scholes told BBC Radio 5 live: “Rashford will be a brilliant centre forward, there is no doubt about that.

“His pace is incredible. He’s almost the club’s most important player now at the age of 19.”
