Sir Alex Ferguson was among those to pay tribute at the funeral of Aberdeen Football Club legend Teddy Scott, who died at the age of 83.

Mr Scott joined the Dons as a player in the 1950s and served the club for 50 years as a coach and kit man.

He was a key member of Sir Alex's backroom team, served under more than a dozen managers, and had a testimonial against Manchester United, before retiring nine years ago.

The funeral was at Ellon Parish Church.

Sir Alex said: "Loyalty should always be recognised and rewarded."

Former players Willie Miller, Joe Harper and John Hewitt, and Aberdeen chairman Stewart Milne, were also among those there.

The club said it was "deeply saddened" at the death of a "true legend".
