Man Utd legend Charlton delighted for Giggs

Manchester United legend Sir Bobby Charlton was delighted to see Ryan Giggs score yesterday in a game which tied his appearances record for the club.

Charlton, 70, whose record has stood for 35 years, was full of praise for Giggs. He said: 'He's fantastic. He's a great athlete, a great person, a great footballer and nobody deserves to break records like he does. I'm really proud of him."

Giggs, 34, said: "A two-goal cushion made us a lot more comfortable, I am not bothered about records, this is what it is about, championships. It's great to get a 10th, but let's hope we can get another trophy in Moscow."

On Sir Alex Ferguson's success, Charlton also told manutd.com: Nothing is beyond him. If he gets a team and he's in any position he knows what to do. He gets the best out of his players and it was tricky against Wigan with the rain. But we came through it and won. It's brilliant, absolutely sensational. I am so proud."
