Man Utd's Giggs dismisses retirement talk

Ryan Giggs dismissed talk of retirement after netting for Manchester United in last night's Champions League shootout victory.

"I want nights like this again," he said.

He told Sky Sports he was confident about taking his penalty in the shoot-out, but still believes the 1999 final was more dramatic.

"I don't think you can beat '99," Giggs said. "Penalties can be a lottery. It's how close the teams have been all season."

Giggs said it was a proud moment to beat Sir Bobby Charlton's appearance record for United, especially on a night of Champions League glory.

"It is a proud achievement for myself and my family," he said.

"But in the end it's all about winning trophies."
