Former Manchester United manager Sir Alex Ferguson ‘is now a fan’ of surprise Scottish side

Sir Alex Ferguson has apparently become a supporter of a surprise Scottish Championship side.

The former Manchester United manager is reportedly keeping a keen eye on the fortunes of Kilmarnock.

Based in Ayrshire, Killie have recently hired Derek McInnes as their new manager.

Speaking in The Scotsman, McInnes has claimed that the United legend has been converted to supporting the club.

“Any way you can try and lean on people you should try to utilise,” he explained.

“I had a text from Stevie (Gerrard), I speak to Brendan (Rodgers) regularly and Sir Alex text me to say he’s now a Killie fan which was nice.

“So, you have to use these connections in any way that it might help.

“Ultimately you want to get the strongest team and squad together. I’m just delighted to be in here and accepting the challenge of getting the club back into the Premiership.”

It appears that Sir Alex is enjoying the second tier of Scottish football at the moment.

Arbroath manager Dick Campbell revealed that the former Aberdeen boss had contacted him to wish his part-time side well when they hit the top of the Scottish Championship last month.

The Red Lichties remain top of the table but they are only two points ahead of Sir Alex’s new team Kilmarnock who sit in third having played a game less.
