In 2009, Ferguson received an honorary doctorate in business administration from the Manchester Metropolitan University. He was dissatisfied with the atmosphere at Aberdeen matches, and deliberately created a " siege mentality" by accusing the Scottish media of being biased towards the Glasgow clubs, to motivate the team.

But the lack of a striker after Ruud van Nistelrooy spent most of the season injured saw the club finish third for the third time in four seasons. Dunfermline signed him the following summer (1964), and Ferguson became a full-time professional footballer. According to a Sunday Herald article on 30 May 1999, the official version is that Ferguson was sacked for various breaches of contract, including unauthorised payments to players.FC Köln in the 1967–68 competition, and an important strike against Athletic Bilbao in the 1968–69 edition which helped Rangers into the semi-finals, [23] but on both occasions they were knocked out by English opposition. A bronze statue of Ferguson, designed by Scottish sculptor Philip Jackson, was unveiled outside Old Trafford on 23 November 2012.

Ferguson told journalist Jim Rodger of the Daily Mirror that he had asked at least one member of the squad to go to Aberdeen with him.

St Johnstone's failure to sign another forward led the manager to select Ferguson for a match against Rangers, in which he scored a hat-trick in a surprise 3–2 victory at Ibrox. This brought about a potential fixture congestion so United accepted the FA's recommendation of withdrawing from the FA Cup, the first holders to do so. Tributes also came from Ferguson's players, both past and present, [156] as well as his old foe, Arsène Wenger.

I guess someone thought, oh hey look, Michael Mann is making a Ferrari movie, so we need to make a Lamborghini movie instead! Ferguson's playing career began as an amateur with Queen's Park, where he made his debut as a striker, aged 16.

A BBC Sport article in June 2020 identified him as one of the best Scottish players to have never played a full international. He criticised the Scottish Government and First Minister Alex Salmond for denying the vote to Scots living in the UK but outside Scotland. He also made at least one approach for the Sheffield Wednesday striker David Hirst, but manager Trevor Francis rejected all offers and the player stayed put. However, his dreams of a third European Cup were ended a few weeks later when United were edged out of the competition in the quarter-finals by Bayern Munich on away goals. The following season United managed to beat rivals Manchester City in the 2011 FA Community Shield and eliminated them in the FA Cup third round, but ended the season below City, who won their first Premier League title on goal difference.Ferguson felt that his failure to secure the signing of Mick Harford from Luton Town had cost United the league, and that he needed "an extra dimension" to the team if they were to win the league the following season. The phrase "squeaky-bum time" coined by Ferguson in reference to the tense final stages of a league competition has been included in the Collins English Dictionary and the Oxford English Dictionary. Although United's league form improved greatly in 1990–91, they were still inconsistent and finished sixth. United were unsuccessful in Europe, losing their Champions League semi-final on away goals to Bayer Leverkusen. Ferguson congratulated his opponent Arsène Wenger, who in his first full season at the club, later completed the double: "I think it's good for my young players to lose on this occasion.
