Cardiff City captain Steven Caulker has described Manchester United player-coach Ryan Giggs as an "icon".

Giggs is expected to play at Cardiff for the first time in his career today.

Caulker said: "I have played against Ryan and managed to play with him at the Olympics.

"That was a great privilege. He's a fantastic player and a great icon within the game for young players.

"He has played at United for many years and got such a fantastic record. Ryan is definitely someone who is idolised around the world and proves his worth every week."
