WATCH: ‘T**t!’ Sounds like Paul Scholes isn’t a fan of Howard Webb

Paul Scholes is a man of few words, but that just gives extra impact to what he does say.

And last night, he seemed to use a very rude word to describe ex-referee Howard Webb.

Scholes was on BT Sport covering the Champions League match between Manchester United and Wolfsburg.

James Richardson was introducing his guests for the Champions League Goals Show - including Howard Webb - and Scholes appeared to get caught muttering to fellow panellist Rio Ferdinand when it cut back to the studio.

Maybe he was actually sharing a nice anecdote about his cat, or a hat, but viewers were pretty sure about what they thought he said.
