Manchester United manager Sir Alex Ferguson has dismissed speculation that he might confirm his retirement at the end of next season.
Ferguson will celebrate his 69th birthday at the end of this year and has shown no sign of being affected by the pressures of being United boss since 1986.
And the Scot was more amused than outraged when the suggestion was put to him, saying: "It is rubbish There is no truth in it. I have no intention of retiring and if I did the people I would tell are (chief executive) David Gill and the Glazer family."
