Darren Ferguson misses Doncaster's last game to be by father Sir Alex Ferguson's side in hospital after brain haemorrhage surgery

News broke on Saturday night that Manchester United’s legendary former manager Fergie had undergone emergency surgery for a brain haemorrhage.

A United spokesman said: "Sir Alex Ferguson has undergone emergency surgery today for a brain haemorrhage.

"The procedure has gone very well but he needs a period of intensive care to optimise his recovery. His family request privacy in this matter."

The Scot won a staggering 49 trophies in management, including 13 Premier League titles and two Champions Leagues.

An ambulance was reportedly called to his Cheshire mansion after a seizure at 9am before taking him to Macclesfield district hospital.


And that resulted in Darren racing to be by his father's side along with the rest of his family.

A statement from Doncaster confirmed before their defeat to Wigan that their boss would be absent.

“Gavin Strachan will oversee the final game of the Sky Bet League One season in the manager’s absence. Darren asks for privacy, and will provide an update through the club during the week.”
