Video tributes for Giggs

A number of iconic stars in football passed on their congratulations to Ryan Giggs on his receiving of the Lifetime Achievement Award at the Player of the Year dinner at Old Trafford.

The interim manager was recognised for his outstanding service to the club he has served with such distinction and it is incredible to think he was still one of the best players on the field when bringing himself on as a substitute against Hull City earlier this week.

Former team-mates Paul Scholes, Bryan Robson, Paul Scholes, Robbie Savage, Ole Gunnar Solskjaer, Gary Neville, Phil Neville, Steve Bruce, Nicky Butt, David Beckham and Eric Cantona led the tributes.

However, other global superstars such as Alessandro Del Piero, Gary Lineker, Michel Platini and Pele also added special messages for the 40-year-old.

The final word went to Sir Alex Ferguson who thinks the launch of the new award makes it a special night for Manchester United.
