Ferguson seriously ill in hospital

Former Manchester United boss Sir Alex Ferguson is in hospital and will undergo emergency surgery on Saturday night, say Sky sources.

The 76-year-old is in a “serious condition” and needs an operation.

Ferguson won 13 league titles in 26 years at Manchester United before he stepped down in 2013.

He was recently seen for the United clash with Arsenal at Old Trafford when he presented departing Arsenal boss Arsene Wenger some end-of-season silverware.

There were concerns on Saturday afternoon when his son Darren Ferguson missed Doncaster’s final game of the season against Wigan due to “family reasons”.

Darren Ferguson was due to be in the dug-out at the Keepmoat Stadium but a Rovers statement read: “Darren asks for privacy, and will provide an update through the club during the week.”/SkySports
