United moved into the Carling Cup last eight with a goal from Cristiano Ronaldo, the current No 7. There was a coolness the way he buried his penalty calmly into the bottom corner, giving Russell Hoult no chance.

The goal gave United a flying start and Luis Saha's strike was his first since January. O'Shea took Saha's return ball down with one touch, then belted a superb volley past Hoult.

Nathan Ellington pulled one back for the visitors 14 minutes from time but it was never going to be any more than a consolation.

At the final whistle, Best's name reverberated around the ground, the home fans content his flamboyant legacy to the club had been upheld.
