"It's a tough league to win and you can see by the celebrations it's still as special as ever. This is what you live for. This is why I'm still playing at 37 for these moments. It gets better and better."

Giggs: Title is sweet as ever

Ryan Giggs says he will never grow tired of winning titles after securing his 12th at Ewood Park, a record 19th for the club.

The ageless midfielder has been in inspirational form of late and his appetite for success shows no signs of diminishing.

Giggs insists that title-winning feeling is as sweet as ever and reckons the Reds are worthy champions.

"It's a tough league to win and you can see by the celebrations it's still as special as ever," said Ryan.

"This is what you live for. This is why I'm still playing at 37 for these moments. It gets better and better.

"It's a pleasure to play in this team, the spirit is brilliant and we want to win trophies.

"We're champions and we're in the Champions League final, it's a rubbish team!" joked the 37-year-old in reference to the remarks that the current team lacks the excitement factor of past sides.

"Maybe early on in the season we weren't playing great football, but since the turn of the year we've played some good stuff and we deserve to be champions."

This latest triumph puts the Reds ahead of great rivals Liverpool in the title stakes and Giggs is delighted to be part of the side that has ensured United's place as the most successful side in England.

"It's great," he declared. "If you look back 20 years we were nowhere near Liverpool.

"To overturn that kind of deficit is great credit to the club, to the manager and the players who have been involved. It's great to be in front of our biggest rivals."
