Journalist facing Man Utd ban after asking Fergie about Giggs

One journalist faces being banned from Old Trafford by Manchester United boss Sir Alex Ferguson this week for asking a question about Ryan Giggs.

Press attention on Giggs, 37, intensified on Monday when he was named in Parliament as the married footballer involved in a controversial privacy case.

Liberal Democrat MP John Hemming used parliamentary privilege to name him as the Premier League player who took out an injunction over his alleged relationship with 28-year-old reality TV star Imogen Thomas.

A tame question about the veteran Welshman during a press conference today ahead of Saturday's Champions League final with Barcelona led to Sir Alex Ferguson threatening to ban a journalist from future briefings.
