Manchester United boss Sir Alex Ferguson says Gary Neville will be offered a coaching job when he hangs up his boots.

Ferguson said: "Gary will have a role at some level like Robbo (Bryan Robson) and Ole Gunnar Solskjaer, too.

"I had the idea some years ago to make iconic figures here ambassadors for the club.

"And like Ryan Giggs, Gary is doing his coaching badges - which is encouraging."
