Ferguson hasn't always been a popular figure at Ibrox - despite spending two years there as a player in the 60s.
But the Old Trafford boss was delighted with the welcome he received when United came calling seven years ago and can't wait to return to Govan.
He said: "I'm looking forward to Ibrox. The last time we went there I got a really good reception and I was surprised.
"Going as manager of United is different because I've been here such a long time."
