Manchester United boss Sir Alex Ferguson insists Tottenham star Gareth Bale isn't a match for Ryan Giggs.

Bale is regarded as the best Welsh player since Giggs emerged from the Manchester United youth ranks two decades ago.

"It is all opinions I suppose," Ferguson said ahead of Sunday's clash with Spurs at White Hart Lane. "The boy is a good player. But Ryan Giggs at 23? I don't think there was anyone better."

On Giggs' next contract, Ferguson was not giving anything away on that front on Friday.

"Nothing to discuss at all there," he said.
