Former Manchester United boss Sir Alex Ferguson was in far better mood after last night's final whistle than he was at the weekend.

Robin van Persie fired Manchester United to the Champions League quarter-finals, putting a smile on the face of the man who signed him.

Former boss Sir Alex Ferguson was captured on camera after the game in the stands at Old Trafford looking delighted at the result, a far cry from his reaction days earlier.

Fergie was shown with a face like thunder as Liverpool won 3-0 at Old Trafford (below), but seeing the result against Olympiakos certainly cheered him up.

David Moyes confirmed earlier in the week that he had been speaking with his predecessor regularly in a bid to put things right, and their next conversation will be a lot more cordial at least.
