Man Utd boss Ferguson: Gerrard? Imagine us signing him! Bloody 'ell!

Manchester United boss Sir Alex Ferguson has joked about signing Liverpool captain Steven Gerrard. Ferguson was asked about trying to sign Gerrard earlier in the midfielder's career.

"Don't ask … it's not a question that," he says with a roguish grin. "Imagine me going to bed having taken Gerrard from Liverpool? Christ Almighty."

The image conjured is of half a city hunting down Sir Alex for abducting their hero. Is it a pity that a player of Gerrard's class has never won the league?

"I don't think it's a pity. Are you joking? Bloody hell."
