Manchester United manager Sir Alex Ferguson has no intention of giving Robin van Persie a rest and urged him to follow his own father's advice to break his goal drought.

"My dad always used to say 'make sure you batter the ball - don't tap it or try and side-foot it into the net'," Ferguson said.

"That's what I always tell strikers too. If the goalkeeper saves it, you can say 'what a great save'. But if you try to side-foot it and the keeper catches it easily you get criticised.

Here's a few more things that Scots like to 'batter' on a regular basis.
