Glasgow Caledonian University in Scotland has honored former Manchester United manager Sir Alex Ferguson by naming a library after him in the institution.
The colorful ceremony was reported to have been done on Wednesday, October 30, with the 77-year-old Ferguson also on ground at the University.
And while responding to the great gesture from the University, Sir Alex Ferguson donated some personal materials which will be placed in the school.
Among those materials donated by Sir Alex Ferguson are football shirt, an early coaching notepad and a manager-of-the-year trophy.
The library inside the Glasgow University was formerly known as Saltire Centre before the name was changed.
“I’ve had a brilliant relationship with GCU over many years now, and it is an absolute honor that the University has chosen to name its library after me.
"The University was keen to give an insight into the person the Library has been named after and I hope that donating personal items from my life will help to do that.
"I thoroughly enjoy returning to the University and listening to students speak passionately about their experiences,'' Ferguson explained according to the report on UK Sun.
