Sir Alex Ferguson watches Man Utd target Wanyama score for Celtic in huge win

The Old Trafford gaffer sat next to Totenham manager Andre Villas-Boas as the Kenyan scored the second goal in 33rd min with a trade mark powerful header

Manchester United manager Sir Alex Ferguson was in the stands as Kenya midfielder Victor Wanyama scored for Scottish giants Celtic FC against Dundee United in an SPL league match played at Celtic Park on Tuesday night.

The Old Trafford manager did not travel to Qatar for the warm weather training his players are currently undergoing with the signing of Wilfried Zaha from Crystal Palace reportedly another reason for Ferguson missing the trip.

According to, Ferguson sat next to Totenham Hotspurs manager Andre Villas-Boas to watch Celtic destroy Dundee United 4-0. Gary Hooper grabbed a brace striking in the 19th and 80th minute while Wanyama gave the Celts the second in the 33rd minute with a trade mark powerful header.

Substitute Scott Brown then put the game to bed slotting home in the 84th minute. Ferguson returned to his Glasgow roots for Celtic legend Sean Fallon’s funeral on Wednesday and also took in Celtic’s home match with Dundee United.

Manchester United have long been linked with a move for the powerful Kenyan midfielder and with Arsenal keen, a move to the Premier League has not been ruled out for this transfer window.

Wanyama, by all accounts, was in terrific form against Dundee United with a trademark all action display that included a goal and a chance that hit the post.

The 21-year-old would be a fine addition for many Premier League teams, including Manchester United who are arguably weakest in central midfield.
