Video: Top 10 scorers

Paul Scholes entered the top 10 Manchester United scorers of all-time outright with his first-half goal against Bolton Wanderers at the weekend.

The returning midfielder moved ahead of Ruud van Nistelrooy in the pecking order with his 151st strike in all competitions for the Reds.

Sir Bobby Charlton still tops the list of course with his record tally of 249 goals but Scholesy's team-mates Wayne Rooney (164) and Ryan Giggs (162) are still looking to close the gap on the Old Trafford legend.
