delegates penalty decision

27/11/2006 11:30, Report by Ben HibbsBoss

Louis Saha and Cristiano Ronaldo will decide between themselves who should be on spot-kick duty for United, according to Reds boss Sir Alex Ferguson.

After Saha's miss against Celtic in the Champions League last week, it was speculated that Ronaldo would assume the responsibility for the Reds.

The Portuguese winger has proved he has the nerve to take penalties in high-pressure situations, he converted the decisive kick to knock England out of the World Cup in the summer.

But, despite reports suggesting the 21-year-old had been promoted to the role of regular penalty taker, Sir Alex has confirmed he will let the decision be made by the two players on the day.

"I have left it between Louis and Cristiano to decide," the Reds boss told Sky Sports.

"Sometimes if one is playing better than the other it is sensible for the one who is playing really well to take it. Although I told Louis if he needed one for his hat-trick he should take it."
