Video: Giggs in action

After 24 seasons in the Manchester United first team, Ryan Giggs has decided to hang up his boots.

The Reds legend and club's most successful ever servant won a staggering 34 major honours as a player, while notching 963 appearances and firing 168 goals.

Giggs, who will be sticking around at Old Trafford to assist Louis van Gaal at the United helm, reflected on his incredible career in an open letter on ManUtd.com, saying he had "loved every minute of playing for and representing the biggest and best club in the world."

In our special video above, we look back on the Welshman in action and hear from a number of Ryan's team-mates. Enjoy.
