Manchester United manager Sir Alex Ferguson was reportedly rushed to hospital with a suspected heavy nose bleed last night.

The Reds legend, 70, had been due to speak at a celebratory dinner in Glasgow to mark the 40th anniversary of Rangers’ Cup Winners’ Cup Final win against Moscow Dynamo.

He was apparently taken from the £75-a-head event at the Thistle Hotel to the hospital as a precautionary measure before being discharged when doctors decided it was not serious.

A Manchester United spokesman told The Sun: “There was a minor problem but he is at home resting and is fine.”

Former Rangers managers Alex McLeish and Walter Smith were at the sold-out dinner alongside the players who won the trophy at Barcelona’s Nou Camp Stadium in 1972.

Sir Alex celebrated 25 years in charge of Manchester United in November and enjoyed success in Scotland before his arrival at Old Trafford.

He was at East Stirlingshire and St Mirren before he led Aberdeen to the Scottish championship title in 1980 and the European Cup Winners’ Cup in 1983.

In his time at Old Trafford, he has steered Man Utd to 12 Premier League titles, two European Cups and five FA Cups.

However, United’s cross-city rivals Manchester City sensationally turned the tables on Sunday by clinching the title in extra time.
