Video: The Lawman

Denis Law's fame transcends generations of fans, from those who were fortunate enough to cheer him on from the Stretford End to those that know his name but need sites like ManUtd.com to see why he was called 'The King'.

Our special video shows some of his 237 goals for the Reds, a tally that only one player has topped for United - his team-mate and fellow member of the United Trinity, Sir Bobby Charlton, who holds the outright record on 249.

The footage also features archive comments from Law's contemporaries, including two of the men who managed him - Sir Matt Busby, naturally, and his boss at Huddersfield Town, Bill Shankly. Also look out for soundbites from former United and Scotland defenders Martin Buchan and Gordon McQueen and one of his biggest fans, Sir Alex Ferguson, who today welcomed Denis' appointment as an official United ambassador. Well done, Denis.
