Sir Alex Ferguson has launched an astonishing tirade at "wee club" Newcastle and their manager Alan Pardew, who he accused of being "the worst" at haranguing referees.
The Manchester United boss also accused Pardew of "forgetting the help" he offered him at difficult stages of his managerial career.
Ferguson marched on to the pitch on Boxing Day to condemn referee Mike Dean for awarding Newcastle's second goal in United's 4-3 win.
Dean confirmed yesterday he would not be reporting Ferguson, even though the chief confronted not only the referee, but also the fourth official and assistant referee.
Ferguson insists he did nothing wrong, and defended his conduct, admitting he was "an emotional guy".
I carry that because I am the manager of the most famous club in the world.
I am not like Newcastle, a wee club in the north east."
