Sir Alex Ferguson and Gareth Bale scoop Barclays award

Sir AlexManchester United boss Sir Alex Ferguson has picked up the 2012/13 Barclays Premier League Manager of the Year Award.

The 71-year-old picks up the gong after leading United to their 13th Premier League trophy under his tenure and 20th league title overall.

It is the 11th time in his illustrious career that Ferguson has been named Premier League Manager of the Year.

The veteran Scot announced last week that he will retire at the end of the season after 26 trophy-laden years with the Red Devils.

He will take charge of the club for the final time at West Brom on Sunday before handing the reins over to David Moyes, who will join the club from Everton on July 1.

Tottenham winger Gareth Bale has been named the Barclays Premier League Player of the Year after scoring 20 goals in 31 league appearances for the White Hart Lane club.
