Alex Ferguson receives honorary degree

Sir Alex Ferguson becomes a Doctor of the University of Stirling.

Sir Alex Ferguson will become a Doctor of the University of Stirling this afternoon.

The Manchester United boss is being granted an honorary degree in recognition of his “outstanding contribution to sport” and “great distinction in the field of sport and the general public arena”.

Glasgow-born Ferguson’s first management post was at nearby East Stirlingshire in 1974, before which he had spent four years playing for Falkirk, whose football academy is located on the university’s campus.

University chancellor James Naughtie will present the 69-year-old with his doctorate today in one of four graduation ceremonies taking place this week.
