Fergie vs Hansen part III: 'He's dug himself into a grave' says United boss

Sir Alex Ferguson has accused Alan Hansen of trying to upset Manchester United before their FA Cup clash with Liverpool to help his pal Kenny Dalglish.
Fergie is still sore at Hansen's comments on Match of the Day that United have not been as good this season as they have been.
The United boss suspects Hansen might not have been completely impartial with his comments in the build-up to last Saturday's FA Cup tie at Anfield.
"He tried to change it by saying it was our away form he was talking about, but I have read his transcript and he said we were woeful for the last year-and-a-half, he didn't mention away games," said Fergie.
"So he's dug himself into a grave really.
"He's in a responsible position in the role he's got in football and it's obvious to me he has said it the week before we played Liverpool.
"And I can understand, he's a former Liverpool player, that's no problem for me, and Kenny's his pal, he's maybe tried to jack it up a little bit there. But he should be more responsible really.
"When you think about it, we've played in European Cup Final, semi-final of the FA Cup last season, won the league by nine points, so we couldn't have been that woeful! Jesus Christ. Maybe he's not got very good grammar."
