    Both are/were world class,but I prefer Scholes.

    Gerrard is the complete midfield engine,covering every blade of grass with equal contribution in defence,attack and midfield.Great leader.

    Scholes was never known for his defensive ability,infact he was awful lol.

    But what puts him ahead is his passing,vision and reading of the game.His passing is far ahead of Gerrard,no disrespect as he was great too.

    Scholes had great technique and used to pull the strings in midfield,he rarely gave the ball away.

    He was a Xavi type of type of player.

    Believe it or not,Xavi modeled his game round him.

    Scholes has more influence on the game but Gerrard is a more complete footballer.

    Scholes was a player who played and made others play too.

    Both are legend for their clubs,just look how bad United's midfield is without Scholes.Im sure LFC will miss Gerrard the same.United used to be so dominant and now they are so rubbish,so do you see his significance.He was a crucial part of United's success...now they are suffering without him.

    No disrespect to Gerrard,but Scholes passing is a level ahead.

    Besides Gerrard "Hoofs" it whereas Scholes has some beauty in it.

    Scholes also has a better first touch and ball control.

    But Gerrard is miles ahead in the defensive and work rate department.

    Scholes. Not that Gerrard isn't great, but Scholsey had something extra.

    Every team needs a thumper like Scholes

    Manchester United kicked Scholes out of the club because he didn't agree to play the new formation

    Gerrard by far!... Scholes was pretty much just a squad player!... and a yellow card receiving machine!... when he first left in 2011 his absence made zero impact on the United team!...

    He was basically a ginger Carrick!...
