The free gifts from Sir Alex and David Gill that were delivered by DHL to United fans at Old Trafford for the opening Barclays Premier League home game of the season against Spurs went down a storm.

With the supporters holding the scarves aloft to form a sea of red when the champions made their entrance, it was a sight to behold as our exclusive video proves.

The 'Champ19ns' scarf is already a collector's item with the limited-edition present being treasured by the United faithful.
