When Fergie was decked – and here’s the proof

It happened all of 25 years ago but it has now been revealed that Sir Alex Ferguson was decked in a sensational dressing room bust up by one of his own players. The then Aberdeen boss hit the ground ‘like a ton of bricks’ after being smacked in the face by angry striker Frank McDougall. Fergie is famous for his ‘hairdryer’ treatment who once cut David Beckham’s eyebrow with a flying boot but he more than got a taste of his own medicine after going face to face with the fired up McDougall.
