Sir Alex Ferguson has been spotted roaming famous battle grounds in his traditional Scottish ceremonial dress.
Dog walkers in Stirling reported an old man in a kilt strolling the famous battlefields and shouting instructions to unseen persons.
It was confirmed to be Sir Alex after a Man Utd spokesperson released a statement saying they had turned down a request by the now retired Ferguson to take the players on a training day to the fields of Stirling.
The sports press put two and two together and sent their junior reporters to stake-out battle-grounds in Stirling and Bannockburn.
Their suspicions were confirmed late on Monday night when a barely cognisant Ferguson appeared, this time at Bannockburn, shouting at an unseen Gary Neville to stay tight on his man.
When approached by the reporters Ferguson delivered what appeared to a post-match interview, stating that he was “very proud of the boys” and that the referee made a few questionable decisions, but that overall he was happy with the play.
Ferguson then retreated to his car and was driven away by his chauffeur.
It is not yet known if Ferguson plans to visit other famous battlegrounds. Journalists are currently camped at Culloden and Lanark, as well as various spots in England.
Recent reports of a drunk Scotsman wandering the wastes of Helmand Province in Afghanistan seem to suggest that Ferguson may have taken his tour abroad, however there has been no confirmation at this time.
