Ageless Ryan Giggs set for 1,000th senior game

The Welshman will turn 40 in November but team-mate Rafael da Silva says his team-mates continue to be astonished by his ability. Giggs has demonstrated superb form in recent weeks, after a difficult early-season spell that included a galling half-time substitution in a 3-2 loss at home to Tottenham Hotspur in September.

London: Ryan Giggs is poised to reach yet another milestone in his extraordinary career this weekend as he stands to make his 1,000th appearance in senior football.

The indefatigable Welshman took his tally of appearances to 999 last weekend with a goal-scoring turn in a 2-0 win at Queens Park Rangers that helped Manchester United preserve their 12-point lead at the top of the Premier League.

That advantage seems destined to turn into a 13th English league title for Giggs, which would solidify his place as the most decorated footballer in the English game.
