Giggs's name etched deeper into United history

May 12, 2008

Ryan Giggs etched his name even deeper into the history of Manchester United as he struck the goal which confirmed the Old Trafford club's 10th English Premier League title in the space of 15 years.

His introduction as a second-half substitute at Wigan on Sunday saw the 34-year-old equal United's appearance record of 758 games held by Bobby Charlton who watched the game from the directors box.

    And 12 minutes later Giggs, who made his league debut for United in March, 1991, scored the goal which finally killed off the challenge of both Wigan and title rivals Chelsea as United sealed a 2-0 win which allowed them to retain the championship by a two-point margin.
