Manchester United boss Sir Alex Ferguson was rushed to hospital yesterday, it is reported.

Ferguson was reportedly rushed to hospital with a suspected heavy nose bleed last night.

The Reds legend, 70, had been due to speak at a celebratory dinner in Glasgow to mark the 40th anniversary of Rangers' Cup Winners' Cup Final win against Moscow Dynamo.

He was apparently taken from the £75-a-head event at the Thistle Hotel to the hospital as a precautionary measure before being discharged when doctors decided it was not serious.

A Manchester United spokesman told The Sun: "There was a minor problem but he is at home resting and is fine."
