VIDEO: Sir Alex Meets Bastian Schweinsteiger Before Scotland V Germany

Sir Alex Ferguson had a quick word in the ear of Bastian Schweinsteiger before Scotland took on Germany at Hampden last night.

The legendary former Manchester United boss was in attendance at the Scottish national stadium for their crunch Euro 2016 qualifier with the world champions.

And along with a party of dignitaries, Fergie got the chance to shake hands with each starting player – including new United signing Schweinsteiger.

Unsurprisingly, the Govan-born coaching great had some words of wisdom for the former Bayern man – surely warning him that a goal in the game wouldn’t go down well for him back at Old Trafford:

It turned out Schweinsteiger didn’t hit the net, but he wasn’t required to as the Germans ran out 3-2 winners over Scotland in a pulsating clash.

Instead, Thomas Muller got two goals before Ilkay Gundogan slotted home the second – with the hosts only managing strikes through a Mats Hummels OG and a James McArthur volley.
