Bolton Wanderers manager Gary Megson has defended Manchester United boss Sir Alex Ferguson in light of his recent run in with referee Alan Wiley.

Ferguson claimed Wiley was not fit enough to referee in the top flight after the official took charge of the Champions' game against Sunderland.


And now Megson has waded into the debate and defended Fergsuno- claiming the Scotsman is being targeted due to his profile.

He told the Manchester Evening News: "Fergie couldn't have done any more, he gets hung out to dry because of who he is.

"He has apologised and then everyone criticised the apology- you are damned if you don't apologise and damned if you do,@ Megson explained.

He finished: "What is he supposed to do? He has said something and then, having had time to think about it, he has said 'sorry', end of story- move on."
