Manchester United boss Sir Alex Ferguson has paid tribute to iconic duo Ryan Giggs and Paul Scholes.

Today's game with Wigan Athletic will be Paul Scholes' 700th for the club and Giggs' 600th in the Premier League alone.

Ferguson counts himself fortunate to have had two great servants like Scholes and Giggs for the majority of his 25 years at the club.

He said: "It's still a matter of having pride in them and saying to myself 'Christ I'm lucky to have two devoted players like that'."
