EURO 2020: Sir Alex Ferguson SNUBBED at Wembley as he is turned away from VIP parking

Sir Alex Ferguson is among the great and the good in attendance at Wembley for England vs Scotland this evening but was denied VIP parking. 

The legendary Manchester United manager made the trip to support Steve Clarke's men but was snubbed when refused access to the VIP parking after a four-hour chauffeur-driven ride. 

It would be expected for the red carpet to be rolled out for one of the greatest managers in history but a steward directed him away.

Ferguson will be hoping the rest of the evening is more positive for his beloved Scotland after an inauspicious start.  

He looked disgruntled with the window wound down as his driver spoke to the steward directing cars into the various parking areas. 

Ferguson retired from management in 2013 having won 17 league titles in total. He steered Aberdeen to the European Cup in 1983 and won the Champions League twice with United. 

The 79-year-old, who managed Scotland in 1985 but left after failing to qualify from their World Cup group, will be hoping for an upset for the Tartan Army. 

Around 20,000 Scottish fans are thought to have arrived in London for the game but they have been given less than 3000 tickets of the 21,500 available.

Scotland suffered a 2-0 defeat by the Czech Republic at Hampden Park in their Group D opener. 

Now they face the Auld Enemy, who earned an impressive 1-0 victory over Croatia in their first game of the tournament. 

Friday night's blockbuster game is the oldest in international football. The last time they met at the Euros was in 1996 when Paul Gascoigne scored his famous goal, flicking the ball over a defender's head and volleying in just moments after David Seaman had saved a penalty. 

The odds, and history is stacked against the Scots as England have beaten them at the national stadium 18 out of 32 games. 

Thousands of Scotland fans are in the capital to watch their against the Auld Enemy
