Sir Alex Ferguson has told The Guardian that the only time he really supports Rangers now is when the Gers play Celtic.
The former Manchester United manager played for Rangers between 1967 and 1969.
According to The Guardian, Ferguson became the most expensive footballer in Scotland when he moved to Rangers from Dunfermline Athletic in 1967.
The report has claimed that the Scotsman ‘revered’ Rangers as a boy.
Ferguson has said that now the only time he really supports Rangers is when the Gers are playing against their bitter Old Firm rivals Celtic.
The former Scotland manager has added that his son Jason is a big Celtic fan.
Ferguson told The Guardian: “The only time I really support Rangers is when they play Celtic. The big one. Jason is a Celtic fan. I love phoning him up when Rangers have beaten them.
“The funny thing is that the one team I always look for on Saturday night is Queen’s Park, my first club. I had a great learning experience as a 16-year-old lad playing for them. People think it’s an amateur team but you had to be tough to play for Queen’s Park. That was a great foundation for me.”
Rangers and Celtic are massive clubs, and the rivalry between the Old Firm teams is as intense now as it was when Ferguson was playing.
Celtic have been the dominating force in Scotland for almost a decade, but Rangers are starting to show that they can now displace them.
Under Liverpool legend Steven Gerrard, the Gers have won the league title this season, ending the Hoops’ hopes of ’10 in a row’.
