Ferguson was always awarded with the Honorary Freedom of the Borough of Trafford and the official ceremony took place at a formal meeting of the local council this afternoon.

“I am delighted to accept this honour from Trafford Council,” said Ferguson. “When I arrived at Old Trafford in 1986 I had little idea of the journey that awaited me. Over quarter of a century later, to receive the Freedom of the Borough of Trafford, and to have a part of Trafford carrying my name, is truly humbling.”

    Well yes, I do like ladies, thanks for asking. Did you have someone in particular in mind?
    She’ll need to travel, and do tell her to bring a safari suit.
