Paul Scholes turned 38 years young on Friday, but the Manchester United midfielder's relish for a tackle hasn't been sated as he ploughed into both Wayne Rooney and Robin van Persie in training on Monday.
Surprisingly, just one of Scholes' nine dismissals has been a straight red via one of his infamous tackles, when he was sent off in the 2011 FA Cup semi-final against Manchester City.
