- The beloved steward’s son Danny plays Aaron Dingle in soap Emmerdale
A loyal Manchester United steward who served at the club for 29 years was forced out after a hostess said he called her ‘love’.
Vince Miller, 82, left after a hostess complained he put his arm around her at a match.
The beloved steward, whose son Danny plays Aaron Dingle in Emmerdale, was friends with Sir Alex Ferguson and popular with the star players.
He said he ‘retired with dignity’ from his role as compare in the club’s corporate suites after the complaint in September.
A match-day hostess told The Sun’s Jonny Dillon: ‘He’s an old-school gentleman who’s been working for the club for as long as people can remember and absolutely adores his job.
‘Fergie loves him to pieces and will no doubt be astonished to hear about what has happened after what seems to be such an innocuous incident.’
A Manchester United spokesman said: ‘All of our lounges receive feedback from fans that enjoy the facilities on match day.
‘As a result of the feedback we received in the Old Boardroom over a period of time, we have changed the offering to supporters in that room and part of that change has meant a change in room host.’
