Ryan Giggs says Paul Scholes must start for Manchester United in next week's Champions League final against Chelsea.

"Scholesy deserves to play because he is a great player," said Giggs. "The form he has been in and the goal he scored against Barcelona is why he deserves to play, though I am not doing the manager's job for him. It is a privilege for me to play with someone like that. He does things that other players cannot do. His form has been brilliant this season.

"Obviously the disappointment of missing out on '99 was massive for Scholesy, and for Roy Keane, and it's good he's got another chance now. And he deserves it."
