Sir Alex spent his entire playing career in Scotland, leaving Queen's Park for St Johnstone and Dunfermline in the 1960s, then signing for Rangers in 1967 (pictured, in Rangers shirt, left).
Ferguson scored goals but did not settle at Ibrox, joining Falkirk two years later before ending his playing days at Ayr United.
His managerial career began at East Stirlingshire and St Mirren. By 1978 he was Aberdeen boss - in the next eight years he won three league titles and the European Cup Winners' Cup (pictured right, with Hearts' Sandy Jardine, following Aberdeen's 3-0 victory in the 1986 Scottish Cup final).
