Piers Morgan uses Ferguson book as tea coaster
The British television host found an alternative use for Sir Alex Ferguson's autobiography
British television host Piers Morgan has found an alternative use for ex-Manchester United manager Sir Alex Ferguson's recently-released autobiography.
The 48-year-old, who has appeared as a judge on popular television shows America's Got Talent and Britain's Got Talent, posted a photo on his Twitter account of a cup of tea placed on the book which has become the fastest selling non-fiction book of all time, with the caption: "Knew I'd find a good use for it".
Morgan - who supports Arsenal - received backlash from some of his 3.7 million followers, while one Manchester United supporter responded with a particularly witty tweet, which read: "Good idea, if anyone knows how to hold cups it's definitely Sir Alex."
That response, from Ged Tarpey, ended up attracting over 4,000 Retweets and 2,646 Favourites - considerably higher figures that Morgan's original tweet, which must have come as a bitter disappointment to the former News of the World editor.
