You cannot park here, sir! Disgruntled Alex Ferguson is DENIED from Wembley VIP parking lot as legendary Manchester United ex-Scottish manager arrives for his country’s clash with England at Euro 2020
Sir Alex Ferguson is one of the big and good at Wembley for England against Scotland tonight but has been denied VIP parking.
The legendary Manchester United manager made the trip to support Steve Clarke’s men, but was snubbed when he was denied access to the VIP car park after a four-hour chauffeured drive.
You’d expect the red carpet to be rolled out for one of the greatest managers in history, but a steward fired him.

Ferguson hopes the remainder of the night will be more positive for his beloved Scotland after an unsatisfactory start.
He looked unhappy with the window down as his driver spoke to the flight attendant directing the cars to the various parking lots.
Ferguson retired from management in 2013 after winning 17 league titles in total. He led Aberdeen to the European Cup in 1983 and won the Champions League twice with United.
The 79-year-old, who led Scotland in 1985 but left after failing to qualify in his World Cup squad, is hoping for an upset for the tartan army.
Around 20,000 Scottish fans are said to have arrived in London for the match, but they received less than 3,000 of the 21,500 available.

Scotland suffered a 2-0 loss to the Czech Republic at Hampden Park in their Group D opener.
Now they face off against Auld Enemy, who claimed an impressive 1-0 victory over Croatia in their first game of the tournament.
Friday night’s hit game is the oldest in international football. The last time they met at Euro was in 1996 when Paul Gascoigne scored his famous goal, passing the ball over a defender’s head and making a volley moments after that. David Seaman saved a penalty.
The odds and the story are against the Scots, as England have beaten them at the National Stadium 18 out of 32 games.
