Ryan Giggs: His career in pictures as the Manchester United legend hits 40
A look at the unrivalled career of the United great as he continues to defy belief in competing at the top of the game
As he celebrates his 40th birthday, Ryan Giggs can look back on a career that is the envy of every other player in the history of the Premier League.
13 league titles, four FA Cups, four League Cups, nine Community Shields, two Champions League titles and a Club World Cup success set the Manchester United veteran out as one of the most successful footballers of all-time, although he continues to defy belief as he competes at the top of the game despite his ever-advancing years.
In that time, Giggs has also claimed numerous individual awards, as well as club landmarks that sees him hold the most appearances for United of all time - surpassing the record set by one of their greatest ever players, Sir Bobby Charlton.
