It’s Fergie time with a dif­fer­ence

The Sunday Post (Newcastle) - - EDUCATION -

HE IS fa­mous for his “hairdryer treat­ment” pep talks, so when staff at a Glas­gow ho­tel had an im­promptu coach­ing ses­sion from Sir Alex Fer­gu­son, they may have feared the worst.

But the former Manch­ester United man­ager’s speech was more of a gen­tle blow dry.

Sir Alex of­fered to talk to staff at the Glas­gow Hil­ton ho­tel af­ter he hosted a din­ner for the Street Soc­cer char­ity with Celtic man­ager Bren­dan Rodgers.

Man­agers and staff sat down with him for a de­brief. One in­sider said: “Un­der­neath Sir Alex’s scary de­meanour is a golden heart who wanted to help and sup­port young kids.”
