Ferguson also reserved special praise for goalkeeper Edwin van der Sar, who kept a clean sheet on his return to the United side.
The 39-year-old has endured a miserable campaign so far with knee and finger injuries keeping him on the sidelines before wife Annemarie suffered a stroke just before Christmas.
Ferguson however had no hesitation in drafting the Dutchman straight back in for only his eighth appearance of the season.
"Edwin was magnificent," he added.
"He was steady, his decision-making was great and so was his use of the ball.
"Tomasz Kuszczak has done really well for us over the last few weeks and it is no slight on him to say that Edwin made a difference.
"He is 39 and has 139 caps, two European Cup winners' medals and been in four European finals.
"You could go on and on about his experience and it shows."
