Away from the World Cup, Alex Ferguson's rant against a Cork schoolboy 'keeper is proving to be one of the YouTube viral hits of the summer.

The manager is seen berating the player after he fails to save a penalty in a game against his own side, Dynamo Ballincollig U-11s.

The viral ad campaign marks the launch of Irish betting website

Manchester United Football Club has declined to comment on the advert.

However, a source close to the real Alex Ferguson is reported to have said although he was slightly annoyed his name was used, he did see the "funny side".
