Rio Ferdinand's recent stellar performances haven't gone unnoticed by United fans, who have voted him ManUtd.com's April Player of the Month.

Ferdinand was the poll's clear winner, gaining 40 per cent of almost 10,000 online votes.

The defender's solid displays, particularly in the Reds' European ties against AS Roma and FC Barcelona, earned Rio glowing praise from his manager and team-mates. Now fans have also paid tribute to Ferdinand's mighty efforts.

Cristiano Ronaldo, who netted three times during April, was a distant second (18 per cent), followed closely by Owen Hargreaves and Carlos Tevez, who both polled 14 per cent of the vote each.

Meanwhile, Paul Scholes' spectacular winner against Barcelona at Old Trafford was the runaway winner of April's Goal of the Month poll.

It was no surprise that Scholesy's scorching half-volley garnered an impressive 74 per cent of the vote.

Fully deserved especially with the absence of Vidic.
Bit surprised its the first time he won it this season.
Top top defender.

He's been brilliant for us this season - as a defender and captain.

I was very worried when Vidic got injured but Rio has been immense at the back in his absence. Obviously the whole team contributed, but to keep 2 clean sheets against Barcelona with the attacking talent they have is some achievement - and in no small part down to Rio.

He deserves the April player of the month for the prem also he has been a rock and carried us at the back. Without Vidic he is still solid as ever.
