Fergie, 79, had a brief stint as boss of Scotland in 1985 but left the role after failing to qualify from their World Cup group a year later.
Despite his remarkable success in football, it appears he wasn’t handed the red carpet treatment in North London.
Ferguson was chauffeured to the home of football around four hours before kick-off.
But he wasn’t greeted with the warmest of welcomes when a steward turned him away from the VIP parking.
Nevertheless, Ferguson will be hoping his presence in the crowd can inspire Steve Clarke’s side to pull off a shock upset.
Fergie won 17 league titles as a manager during his illustrious career, lifting the European Cup with Aberdeen in 1983 and the Champions League on two occasions with Man United.
Scotland will be backed by around 20,000 of the Tartan Army who have descended into the capital for tonight’s contest.

The oldest fixture in international football is steeped in history – with the last time England took on the Scots in the Euros way back in 1996.
Gazza marked his winning goal with his infamous dentist chair celebration as the Three Lions went on to win 2-0.
Wembley historically hasn’t been a happy hunting ground for Scotland – with England beating the Auld Enemy 18 times in 32 games at the stadium.
