Sir Alex Ferguson Rejected For VIP Parking After Arriving At Wembley For England Vs Scotland At Euro 2020.
SIR ALEX FERGUSON arrived at Wembley to cheer on his beloved Scotland but the atmosphere soon turned sour when the Manchester United legend was refused VIP parking by staff at the entrance.
Despite his remarkable success in football, it appears he wasn’t handed the red carpet treatment in North London. Ferguson was chauffeured to the home of football around four hours before kick-off.
However, he wasn’t greeted with the warmest of welcomes when a steward turned him away from the VIP parking. Nevertheless, Ferguson will be hoping his presence in the crowd can inspire Steve Clarke’s side to pull off a shock upset.
Thousands of Scotland fans gathered in central London ahead of the team’s Euro 2020 clash with England.
Many fans have travelled despite warnings they should not go to London unless they have a match ticket, or a safe place to watch the game. Scotland were only allocated about 2,600 tickets due to Covid rules, and no fan zone has been set up in the city.
The match at Wembley Stadium was due to kick off at 20:00.
Large groups of supporters wearing kilts, Scotland shirts and flags have been chanting, singing and playing bagpipes at Leicester Square, King’s Cross and Hyde Park.

Ron actually started his working career as an Ophthalmic Technician- things changed when, during a band rehearsal, his amplifier blew up and he couldn’t get it fixed so he took a course at Birmingham University and ended up doing a degree course. He built up a chain of electronics stores and sold them as a franchise over 35 years ago. After five years touring the world Ron decided to move to Spain with his wife and son, a place they had visited over the years, and only bought the villa they live in because it has a guitar-shaped swimming pool!.
Playing the guitar since the age of 7, he can often be seen, (and heard!) at beach bars and clubs along the length of the coast. He has always been interested in the news and constantly thrives to present his articles in an interesting and engaging way.
