Evergreen Giggs extends United stay

Ryan Giggs has today signed a one-year contract extension with Manchester United.

At virtually the exact time Giggs was learning he must face old friend David Beckham for United against AC Milan in the first knock-out round of the Champions League, United confirmed the 36-year-old will remain at Old Trafford for another season.

Giggs has performed superbly over the last 18 months and his amazing achievements were recognised last Sunday when he was named BBC Sports Personality of the Year.
