The former England international continues his media career.
Former Manchester United and England midfielder Paul Scholes has signed as a pundit with BT Sport for four years and has also joined ITV’s team for their Champions League coverage.

The Red Devils legend has been pursuing a career in the media in recent times with his appearances on Sky Sports and now looks set to follow in the footsteps of former teammate Gary Neville and make a career out of it.
Scholes joins a number of other ex-teammates at BT Sport with Michael Owen, Owen Hargreaves and Rio Ferdinand already employed by the channel, whilst United striker Robin van Persie is used as an ambassador.
The Englishman was notoriously shy during his time as a player and therefore it may come as something of a surprise that the 39-year-old has chosen to work in the media.
BT Sport presenter Jake Humphrey has already sent out a message of support to his new colleague.
Welcome to @btsport Paul Scholes… Reporter: “Zinedine, how does it feel to be the worlds best midfielder?” Zidane: “Ask Paul Scholes”
