Man Utd's Lindegaard: Fergie told me he will fine me if I play well against Scotland

Manchester United goalkeeper Anders Lindegaard can expect a fine if he plays well tomorrow night. The 27-year old gloveman is getting set to take on Scotland in an international friendly with Denmark at Hampden Park on Wednesday but he has been warned by club boss Sir Alex Ferguson that he will receive a fine if he makes any saves.

"The boss took me aside on Sunday and said something about how he would fine me if I made any good saves against Scotland," Lindegaard said.

"He said it with a smile and a laugh. He just had a friendly pat on my shoulder.

"I'm hoping he wasn't serious!"

But Lindegaard made it clear that he is a big fan of the Scottish tactician and is keen to become a top player under his tutelage.

"It's a huge privilege to play under him. He's been at United for as long as I remember, before my first memory," he added.

"He's a true legend. Of course he's a world-class manager who makes all his players better. I've become a better player under him.

"I hope to play a part at Hampden. You always hope to play a part and not sit on the bench."
