Vidić handed Man United armband for rest of season

Rio Ferdinand's future as Manchester United skipper is uncertain after Sir Alex Ferguson has confirmed it will be Nemanja Vidić who carries out the duties on regular basis.

There has been huge debate over who would wear the captain's armband for the Red Devils ever since Ferguson revealed earlier in the week that Gary Neville and Ryan Giggs can no longer expect to do the job because they do not play every week.

Many fans expected Ferdinand to get the nod because he has been the regular stand-in over the past few years and was named England captain by Fabio Capello when he decided to remove the job from John Terry.

However, due to a prolonged injury it seems Ferguson may no longer consider the 31-year-old for the captaincy role, despite leading the team in the Champions League fixture against Glasgow Rangers on Tuesday night.

"As I explained last week, what we wanted was someone who was consistently available for us," Ferguson told MUTV.

"Everyone recognises Nemanja Vidić would always be there. He has been fit all season and you don't leave him out of the team unless you are going to rest him.

"He started the campaign as captain and it will stay that way."
