Bookmakers Paddy Power reportedly install an 'emergency' Sir Alex Ferguson waxwork outside of Manchester United's ground Old Trafford.

Bookmakers Paddy Power have decided to make the most out of Manchester United's dismal run in the Premier League by reportedly installing an 'emergency' Sir Alex Ferguson outside of Old Trafford.

The North-West outfit are 15 points adrift of leaders Arsenal in the table after 22 games.

While Ferguson decided to vacate his post to successor David Moyes at the end of last season, it appears that the Scotsman is not for away from the 'Theatre of Dreams'.

Paddy Power have created a waxwork of Ferguson looking at his watch while standing in a box with 'in case of emergency break glass' written on the front, according to the Daily Star.

United's title defence was dampened further when they succumbed to a 3-1 defeat at the hands of Chelsea at Stamford Bridge on Sunday.
