Sir Alex Ferguson hailed Cristiano Ronaldo's winner against Lyon as his most important goal of the 30 he has already struck this season.

The winger finished well after a scrappy build-up as United triumphed 1-0 on Tuesday and 2-1 overall to secure a place in the quarter-final draw of the Champions League.

Ferguson said: "His goal tonight was well-taken. It may not be the best goal he has scored this season but it may turn out to be one of the most important.

"He has scored 30 goals already this season, and it is only the start of March. Potentially there are 16 or 17 games ahead of him, so he could end up with an even higher score.
