Speaking on MUTV, Fergie said: "What a week it's been for Scottish football - the master race is back."

The one-time Scotland gaffer watched openmouthed as Rangers trounced Lyon and Celtic took the scalp of AC Milan in the Champions League.

Aberdeen completed the SPL's Euro success with their UEFA Cup triumph over Ukraine's Dnipro and Ferguson added: "I'm delighted for Jimmy. I didn't fancy Aberdeen because going to Ukraine is difficult and they're a good team. But Jimmy has them organised and they always play with a good appetite. It was a tremendous result."
