Get Giggsy knighted

With his 800th Reds appearance looming, just about every medal the game has to offer in a bulging trophy cabinet, and 19 incredible seasons served at Old Trafford, fans are calling for Ryan Giggs to be knighted.

Giggs made his Reds debut in the old First Division (that's how long he's been around) back in 1991 against Everton.

The Welshman's latest conquest - the prestigious PFA Players' Player of the Year - shouldn't be the only title bestowed upon him, according to United supporters.

The website, sirryangiggs.com, is attempting to canvass a list of names to be sent to the Queen.

It's not the only online army calling for Giggs to be knighted, with several other sites also running petitions.

Giggs did collect an OBE from the Queen for services to football back in December 2007, but fans think Ryan deserves an even higher honour, with which he would join the likes of Sir Alex Ferguson and Sir Bobby Charlton.
