Sir Alex Ferguson to be inducted into Aberdeen FC's Hall of Fame

Sir Alex Ferguson to be inducted into Aberdeen FC's Hall of Fame

It's nearly 30 years since he exited Pittodrie, but a part of Sir Alex Ferguson's heart has never left Aberdeen.

The Glaswegian still visits the north-east on a regular basis and has maintained close links with the players he inspired to their European Cup Winners' Cup triumph in 1983.

So, perhaps the only surprise about the news that the 73-year-old former manager is being inducted into Aberdeen's Hall of Fame on November 5 is that he hasn't already gained this honour.

After all, as somebody who steered the Dons to domestic and European glory, Ferguson propelled them into previously uncharted territory.

And, as British football's most successful manager, he will be the guest of honour at the club's Hall of Fame dinner at the Marcliffe Hotel.

An Aberdeen club spokesman told STV: "It should be a fantastic evening and to have Sir Alex back in Aberdeen at a time when the club is doing so well can only add to the occasion.

"Demand for tables is bound to be huge, and we would urge those interested in attending to book quickly to avoid disappointment.”

It has been confirmed that the dinner will be followed by a Q&A session between Ferguson and those in attendance.

And there are sure to be plenty of questions about the respective merits of the famous 1983 ensemble and Derek McInnes' current squad.

Ferguson will be joining previous inductees, including Joe Harper, Neil Simpson, Jim Leighton, Ally Shewan and the late trio of Eddie Turnbull, Dick Donald and Teddy Scott.

Willie Miller, John Hewitt, Drew Jarvie and Jim Bett have also gained the accolade.

And now, the club is celebrating the induction of possibly their greatest-ever personality.
