The Latics’ 3-0 win at Crawley on Saturday was their first in the league since New Year’s Day and it moved them up to 14th place in League Two, nine points off the play-off places.

Oldham’s next match is against Yeovil at Boundary Park on Tuesday night. It is unclear if Scholes will take charge for that match or whether his first game at the helm will be against Crewe at home on Saturday.

The 44-year-old, who spent his entire playing career with United and won 20 major trophies, including 11 Premier League titles, has very limited coaching experience but talked only last month about his eagerness to get back into football, almost six years since his retirement.

He has been working as a pundit for BT Sport in recent years and was part of the takeover of Salford City in 2014 with his old ‘Class of 92’ team-mates at United – Ryan Giggs, Nicky Butt and Gary and Phil Neville. David Beckham also acquired a stake in the club last month.
