Sir Alex Ferguson has been spotted outside Old Trafford.... in a glass case.

Popular bookmaker Paddy Power has wasted no time in joining the masses revelling in David Moyes’ misfortune today with a rather amusing publicity stunt.
The bookie has listened to the masses of Manchester United fans who have called for Sir Alex Ferguson to return until the end of the season, placing a mobile Fergie model outside Old Trafford captioned ‘In case of emergency, break glass’.
As appealing as that is for plenty of United fans, the club has made a clear investment in David Moyes and Fergie himself has ruled out any chance of him returning to save what has so far been a disappointing season.
Moyes still has a good chance of securing at least a top four finish with the club and still has time to bring in players this month before further rebuilding in the summer. Things would have to get a hell of a lot worse before the glass case is cracked open.
