After hearing the outcome of his disciplinary hearing last week, Sir Alex Ferguson headed straight for Argos to invest in a pair of their cheapest telephones.

The Manchester United boss – banned from the touchline for five matches – shunned mobiles or earpieces to communicate with first team coach René Meulensteen via the medium of a really old phone during Saturday’s victory over Bolton.

    Old phone or not, banned from touchline or not, United won and still top of the league.

    It’s not the phone that makes Unted champions….it’s the players and the points you win.

    Fergie should give that thing to Rio to stop him tweeting.
