End of an Era - Fergie lifts trophy on farewell

Alex Ferguson lifts the Premier League trophy on his Old Trafford farewell after seeing his Manchester United side win 2-1 against Swansea in his last home game as manager

He was greeted with applause and cheering as the crowd waved masses of red flags when he walked on to the pitch before kick-off

Alex Ferguson's emotional speech
"My retirement doesn't mean the end of my life with the club. I will be able to now enjoy watching them, rather than suffer with them. But if you think about the last-minute goals, the comebacks, even the defeats, are all about this great club of ours. It's been an unbelievable experience for all of us. So thank you for that."

"You the fans have always stood by me and your job now is to stand by our new manager."

"I want to pay tribute to Paul Scholes who retires today. He is an unbelievable player, one of the greatest players this club will ever have."

"I have been able to manage some of the greatest players in the country. All of these players today have represented the club in the proper way. They have won the championship in fantastic fashion. Well done to the players. I wish the players every success for the future. You know how good you are, the jersey you are wearing, and all the people here. Don't let yourselves down."

After leaving the pitch Alex Ferguson said, "I was bubbling there for a bit. All those flags, the atmosphere today was unbelievable the whole game. I'm proud of my fans today."
