Wayne Rooney, Ryan Giggs and Paul Scholes are among the 19 players who appropriately touched down at George Best airport on Tuesday afternoon.

They will take on an Irish League select side later, managed by Sunderland boss Martin O'Neill, in honour of legendary Man Utd and Northern Ireland goalkeeper Gregg.

The only high profile absentees from the Premier League side were goalie David de Gea and midfielder Michael Carrick - showing just how highly regarded Harry Gregg is.

Sir Alex Ferguson was first through the arrival doors to lead out the team who paused briefly to sign autographs and take pictures with the handful of fans who attended.

They then boarded the coach which whisked them off to the team hotel to prepare for the game.

Harry Gregg is also expected to appear at the match - he will take to the field with Sir Alex, flanked by the players of both teams, before kick-off.

He made 247 appearances for United under Sir Matt Busby and won 25 caps in all for NI, and told UTV he is honoured that the testimonial is taking place.

"From my point of view, after all these years, it is nice to be remembered," Mr Gregg said.

"There are players better than me that have been forgotten about, players that played for this country in the World Cup - so it's nice to be remembered."

The match at Windsor Park will start at 7.30pm and ticket holders have been asked to arrive at 7pm to enjoy the pre-match build up.


Manchester United squad: Amos, Lindegaard; Evans, Ferdinand, Evra, Jones, Giverin, Fornasier; Giggs, Young, Park, Scholes, Cleverley, Valencia, Nani; Rooney, Chicharito, Owen, Berbatov.

It's a two-horse race now, but one even the most-seasoned pundit would be brave to call.
