A FOOTBALL anthem by a Glasgow composer is to feature in a new film about Sir Alex Ferguson.

European Song, written by the late Harry Barry, celebrated Aberdeen FC’s victory in the 1983 European Cup Winners’ Cup final. It will appear in Sir Alex Ferguson: Never Give In, directed by Ferguson’s son Jason as the football legend recovered from a brain haemorrhage in 2018.

Harry, who died in 2013, recorded the song with the Aberdeen squad. The Uddingston songwriter and producer played drums and sang on Ally’s Tartan Army with the 1978 Scotland World Cup squad and wrote hundreds of songs and jingles over a 50-year career.

Daughter Kate, said: “We’re delighted dad’s memory lives on in his music and look forward to the film. He was a talented man.”
