    Heralded as one of, if not the, greatest managers in European football history, when Sir Alex Ferguson retired at the end of the 2012/13 Premier League Season he laid to rest 35 years at the very top of the English game where he became the most-successful British manager ever. But before the glitz and glamour of his high-flying role at Old Trafford, the former Manchester United manager plied his trade in the SPL, the Scottish premier League.

    Having recently been relieved of his duties as boss of St. Mirren, Ferguson, a hot-headed young manager with a troublesome reputation, had a lot to prove going into his new role as manager of Aberdeen Football Club. And this is where the story of Fergie Rises begins...

    Revolutionising the club, his management style and fighting the Old Firm stranglehold that the two teams had on Scottish football, Fergie Rises lays bare the full story of the little-known football manager who would go on to become a Premier League, FA Cup, League Cup, Champions League and World Club Championship winning manager.

    Taking views from the players inside the legendary Aberdeen dressing room, including Willie Miller, Jim Leighton and Gordon Strachan, Michael Grant examines the rivalries, setbacks, triumphs and personal tragedies that shaped a British sporting genius.
