Manchester United manager Alex Ferguson said farewell to Old Trafford with a typically passionate speech after his side's 2-1 victory over Swansea in his final home match in charge of the team.

Ferguson, 71, announced earlier this week that he will retire at the end of the season, bringing the curtain down on a record-breaking 26-and-a-half-year spell in which he has amassed 38 trophies.

The Scot, who will be replaced by Everton boss Davis Moyes, took to the pitch to address supporters after Sunday's game, having earlier been granted a guard of honour by players from both sides as he made his way onto the pitch.
