The Scot says he could finally look his supporters in the face after his side's 3-0 win against Olympiakos, as the team has not played well enough throughout the season.
Last season's Premier League champions beak Olympiakos 3-0 to qualify for the Champions League quarterfinals Wednesday but the result did not represent United's overall fortunes this season.

"I think the big thing was I could look at the supporters in the face after the game on Wednesday night because I thought we had given them something to shout about, we had nothing to be ashamed of with our performance," the 50-year-old told reporters on Friday. "In some other games I have felt ashamed because the team haven't played well enough and I've not got a team out which has got a good result."
Moyes also confirmed that Robin van Persie will miss this weekend's trip to West Ham - but that the club has not received anything conclusive on the Dutchman's injury, one he picked up against Olympiakos after scoring a hat trick.
"We're getting Robin re-scanned today (Friday)," he said. "We're not quite conclusive on everything we've seen.
"We want to just check that out and be sure. He won't be available for tomorrow's game, but we'll try to give you some update when we can on the outcome of it."
United travels to a West Ham outfit which has won the past three home matches and Moyes is well aware of the threat posed by Sam Allardyce's men.
