SIR ALEX FERGUSON watched his son Darren get booked for arguing as Peterborough United were thumped 3-0 at Luton Town on Saturday.

Sir Alex Ferguson watched on from the stands as his son Darren led his Peterborough side into the new Championship season
Darren Ferguson was booked for arguing as Peterborough were thumped 3-0 at LutonCredit: Rex Fergie played the role of proud dad as he watched on from the stands for Posh’s pre-season opener in Bedfordshire.
But midway through the second-half, with Luton winning 1-0, the Scot watched on as his son was shown a yellow card.
Posh defender Mark Beevers appeared to handle the ball to scupper a quick Luton breakaway.
Beevers was only shown a yellow for his actions, with Darren and Luton boss Nathan Jones involved in a furious row.
Both bosses were booked for their role in the scuffle.
And things went from bad to worse for Ferguson Jnr shortly after.
Luton went 2-0 up through a Harry Cornick goal just three minutes after Darren’s booking.
And another three minutes later, it was 3-0 to the hosts after Fred Onyedinma got on the score-sheet.

For Ferguson the younger, it was the worst possible start to what is his third season as Peterborough manager in his his third stint.
Ferguson Jnr – who finished his playing career at the club – served as manager between 2007 and 2009, before returning between 2011 and 2015.
Following a three-year stint as Doncaster boss, Ferguson came back to London Road in 2019.
