Liverpool loss angered Fergie so much he told players he’d fine them for laughing

first_img Ferguson bounced back from losing to Liverpool with Aberdeen and eventually usurped them at the top with his Man United team He made notes and those tough lessons later saw the Dons beat Bayern Munich and then Real Madrid to win the Cup Winners Cup in 1983.Three years later he had the Man United job and set about usurping Liverpool as Britain’s most dominant side to become the team of the 90s and noughties.In fact, the last time Liverpool played Man United at Old Trafford as Premier League leaders was under Fergie’s watch in 1996. Laughter was banned and so nobody dared speak on the bus back from Liverpool to Aberdeen in 1980 for fear of Sir Alex Ferguson.The manager was not happy and was threatening to hit his Dons’ players in their pockets if they dared tried lightening the mood.A second round European Cup clash had ended in a 5-0 aggregate win for Liverpool, with a 4-0 loss coming at Anfield in what was Fergie’s first visit to the stadium – it has been suggested this is where his eagerness to knock them off their perch came from.“He actually banned the players from laughing on the team coach on our journey back,” Gordon Strachan recalled years later.“’Anyone who laughs will be fined £10,’ he said. And he kept looking back, trying to catch one of us out.”It was no shame to be beaten by Liverpool, who in Kenny Dalglish, Alan Hansen and Graeme Souness, had a strong Scottish edge. They were the best in the country.And after winning at Pittodrie, Liverpool welcomed Aberdeen to Anfield where they had not lost for 76 matches and they extended that record with a 4-0 win.Fergie, serving a touchline ban, could only watch on and pray for a quick and painless end.Writing in his book, A Light in the North, he said: “Towards the end of the game I told Willie Garner – I was still banned from the bench and Willie was acting as a runner for me – that we might as well put on young Neale Cooper for the experience. ‘And’, I said, ‘while you’re down there, tell the referee to blow the bloody whistle!’“That summed up how I felt. I was never so glad to get a game out of the way in my whole life.”Still, the loss helped him propel Aberdeen to the heights fans haven’t seen since. Getty Images – Getty 1last_img read more
