Fergie leads star tributes

Tottenham Hotspur's Dave Mackay had "fantastic ability" and should have won more caps, ex-Manchester United manager Alex Ferguson said at the Scotland international's funeral in Edinburgh yesterday.

Mackay, who Spurs described as the 'heartbeat' of their 1961 double-winning side, was laid to rest as hundreds of supporters lined the streets of the Scottish capital to pay tribute to the tough-tackling left half who died aged 80 earlier this month.

A cortege left his first club Hearts' Tynecastle stadium for the remembrance service in the city. Among those paying their respects were Mackay's former Scotland team mate Denis Law and ex-Tottenham and Northern Ireland goalkeeper Pat Jennings.
