At 36 Giggs is still going strong after making his debut for the club in the 1990-91 season. And United's record appearance holder, with 838 matches, is getting ready for another run-out on the tour of the United States on Wednesday against Philadelphia Union.
When asked who was his favourite footballer of all time, Brown responded: "I know it is going to sound daft this but I would have to say Giggsy. Of course, you have got the likes of Maradona and Pelé who were world-class players, but for me it is Giggsy. His overall game and his achievements are just incredible.
"You get one-offs every now and again and he's certainly one of them. To have performed consistently well at the top level for such a long time and stayed with one team is amazing. It is difficult to think of anyone else like Ryan; Sir Bobby [Charlton] is probably the only other player to compare with Giggsy."
