Legendary Manchester United manager Sir Alex Ferguson was rushed to hospital on Saturday to have emergency surgery on a brain haemorrhage.

According to The Times, the Scottish icon had reportedly been complaining to friends about his health as early as Thursday.

Ferguson's son Darren was absent from the dugout for Doncaster Rovers' final game of the League One season, which they lost 1-0 to champions Wigan.

The uncertainty surrounding Ferguson's condition now appears to have removed after an official statement from Manchester United appeared on Twitter.

The ever-reliable Simon Stone tweeted the news from the club a short while after the tragic reports surfaced.

“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 club also added: "Darren asks for privacy, and will provide an update through the club during the week."

Horrible, horrible news.
