Sir Alex Ferguson wasted little time in capitalising on his impending retirement at the weekend when he confirmed, with no fuss, Wayne Rooney had requested to leave Manchester United. So with his reign of tyranny coming to an end, a video of him singing The Proclaimers' I'm Gonna Be (500 Miles) has been revealed.

Filmed at an annual charity golfing event in 2011, Ferguson got on stage with a kilted band to dance and sing the Scottish band's cult hit, even donning a tartan hat for the occasion.

The Scot showcased something similar enthusiasm after United's traumatic final day of the 2011-12 campaign. A day after Manchester City snatched the Premier League title from their clutches in the dying embers, Ferguson addressed United's fans and players at the club's end of season awards dinner.

After a few sherries, Ferguson vowed to regain the title, and he made good on his promise.
