Man Utd boss Ferguson wrong about Man City result: It was not your worst Fergie!
Ferguson was wrong to claim that Sunday's 6-1 defeat was the worst he had experienced since beginning his senior career with Queen's Park in 1957.
United's manager was on the receiving end of an even bigger hiding 40 years ago, when playing for Falkirk against Airdrieonians, on April 26, 1971.
It was the final First Division game of the campaign and Airdrie needed to score six goals to overtake Rangers and win a place in the following season's short-lived Drybrough Cup. Goals from Billy Wilson (2), Drew Busby (2), Derek Whiteford, Drew Jarvie and Sam Goodwin gave Airdrie a 7-1 win.
