That this House notes the outstanding contribution to football of Sir Alex Ferguson as manager of Aberdeen from 1978 until 1986 and then Manchester United, spanning four decades, from 1986 until his retirement in May 2013; recognises the success both in the Scottish and English top divisions, breaking the stranglehold of Rangers and Celtic in Scotland with Scottish League, Scottish Cup and European Cup Winners' Cup success, and then transforming Manchester United into the most successful English club of all time, winning an unprecedented 38 trophies, including 13 league titles and two UEFA Champions League titles; further notes the joy he has brought to fans of Manchester United, and despair to fans of other teams during his 26 years as Manchester United manager; and wishes him well for his retirement.
