Giggs was a little disappointed that the Reds could not retain the lead secured through Danny Welbeck's first-half strike.
"When you’re playing for United and you go 1-0 ahead, you expect to be able to see the game out," he admitted to MUTV. "But fair play to Shakhtar - they’ve got some decent players and they put us under a lot of pressure. We’ve won our first game and drew a very tough away game so we’ll take that.
"We are in a good position; it’s a tough place to come this. Hopefully we can get a few victories from the next couple of games and that’ll put us in a good position."
