Giggs turns 40

11:36 am on 1 December 2013

One of Old Trafford's favourite football sons has celebrated his 40th birthday, and Ryan Giggs could keep on playing for Manchester United.

The Welshman's been a crowd favourite since making his first-team debut at age 17 in 1991.

But while Giggs is out of contract at the end of the season, he's not ruling out racking up an incredible 1,000 games for the champions and says he'll know when it's time to hang up the boots.

On Monday against Tottenham Hotspur in London, Giggs will become the seventh player to appear in the Premier League past the age of 40.

It'll be his 954th match for United.
