Piers Morgan uses Ferguson book as tea coaster

Football News

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.
