The Man Utd coach Alex Ferguson has just led his club to their 19th League title, and they are in the final of the Champion League for the third time in six years, but it seems it could have all been different if he had accepted Arsenal’s offer to become their manager.
Ferguson said, in the Rangers programme, when he was talking about his relationship with the retiring Walter Smith.: “I was offered the Arsenal job and I wanted to take Walter with me.
“I thought I would sound him out when we were on Scotland duty together. We were going to play in Israel and I didn’t know that Walter was going to Rangers at that time.
