Given the success he enjoyed across 40 years of management with the likes of Aberdeen and Manchester United, Alex Ferguson has always moved with the times.

Social media is the next step in the 73-year-old's post football career as he has formally joined social media site LinkedIn.

 

 

Billing himself as a "Director, Ambassador, Visiting Fellow and Author", Ferguson has already attracted over 15,000 followers, although fans cannot connect with him unless they actually know him personally.
