“My hero and one of the most underrated forwards of all time,” said one supporter.

McClair became the first United forward to score 20 goals in a season since George Best, having struck 24 times in his first season following a move from Celtic in 1987.
The forward was part of four teams that won trophies at Old Trafford, winning the FA Cup three times and the 1991 UEFA Cup Winners’ Cup.
McClair also scored the UEFA Super Cup-winning goal against Red Star Belgrade in 1991 before repeating the feat the following year in the League Cup final against Nottingham Forest.
McClair, nicknamed ‘Choccy’, left United in 1998 to rejoin his first club Motherwell before retiring.
He returned to Old Trafford in 2001 to join the coaching staff and was head of the club’s youth academy until 2015.
