Man Utd legend Giggs dismisses boo-boys

Manchester United legend Ryan Giggs isn't bothered about the boos he's copped from fans this season.

Giggs has become a target for some Manchester United fans, following recent league slip-ups at Middlesbrough and Blackburn.

But the veteran of nine Premier League title wins claims there is only one person's verdict which really matters - that of Alex Ferguson.

Giggs, 34, said: "Getting criticism is part of being a Manchester United player. It doesn't bother me.

"I don't know why I'm singled out. Maybe it's because I've been around so long.

"But the one person I have to impress is the manager - and while he is picking me, I know I am good enough."

Giggs admits he cherishes each game now more than ever, knowing the finishing-line is near.

He admitted: "When you are young, you think you'll get another chance. At 34, you know there are not many chances left.

"I've been enjoying my football more than ever since I turned 30, probably because I know I'm close to the end.

"Right now, though, you do think 'This could be my last trophy' or 'This could be the last big game I play in'."
