After collecting his OBE yesterday, Manchester United hero Ryan Giggs revealed he plans to play beyond the length of his current contract.

Giggs said: "I've been in the first team 16 years and I've been fortunate to have a lot of highs. You're going to have lows but that makes you a better person and a better player.

"Without those times you probably can't progress. You've got to tackle the highs and the lows with a level head.

"My hunger is still there. I'm playing in a great team at the moment, playing exciting football, so hopefully there are more medals to be won.

"Soon I'll have to start thinking about what I do when I stop playing but I'm enjoying my football. I've got 18 months on my contract and hopefully I can continue for another couple of years."
