Ryan Giggs turning 40-years-old today amidst reports that the club is prepared to offer him yet another contract extension.

Wayne Rooney was full of praise for Giggs following our 5-0 thrashing of Bayern Leverkusen and claims that one of their defenders was amazed by Giggs’ ability to play at this level at his age.

“Ryan was fantastic,” said Rooney.” He’s done it for years and I’ve run out of things to say about him. During the game, actually, their centre-half was asking, ‘How is he still playing at that age? It’s great to see, his ­composure on the ball is fantastic. I don’t know how he’s still doing it. I certainly won’t be playing at that age, that’s for sure!”
