Sir Alex Ferguson insists he has no regrets over turning down the chance to manage Rangers.
Ferguson played for the Scottish giants between 1967-69 and had the opportunity to manage the club when he was in charge of Aberdeen back in the 1980s.
But the 75-year-old reveals he felt uneasy about joining the club and didn’t want to go behind the back of Rangers legend Willie Waddell (general manager at the time) who was unaware of the approach.
Ferguson went on to become one of the biggest legends in the game after winning an incredible 25 major trophies at Manchester United and is adamant he made the right decision to go elsewhere.
Ferguson, speaking on the Rangers official website, said: “I may have been more attracted to the job had Willie Waddell approached me for it.
“But it wasn’t Willie Waddell, it was John Paton [then Rangers chairman] who spoke to me.
“So I spoke to Scot Symon and he asked if it was Waddell who had made the approach. On finding out it wasn’t, he said he would worry about that as Willie was still running the show.
“That was one of the reasons I felt uneasy about it, so I turned it down.
“I think I did the right thing going to England from Aberdeen.”
