Manchester United boss Sir Alex Ferguson has revealed he will take his strongest available squad over to Northern Ireland for the testimonial of former United goalkeeper Harry Gregg at Windsor Park on May 15.

United will take on an Irish League Select XI managed by Sunderland's Martin O'Neill and Linfield boss David Jeffrey to honour the 79-year-old, a hero of the Munich disaster.

Ferguson added: "We're bringing our strongest team over.

"For Manchester United to honour a player who, apart from (saving) his peers from the Munich air disaster, you've got to remember the career he had here. It's absolutely apt that we send our best squad."
