“My role in the team has changed over the last five or six years,” he added. “I’m an experienced player and a kind of elder statesman and it’s a position I’m quite comfortable with regard to helping the young players. I’m not starting as many games but it’s about being ready when I do.”
Giggs remains the only player in history to have scored in every Premier League season up to the current campaign. A league goal this term has so far eluded him and it’s something he’s keen to put right.
“I’d obviously like to score but it’s not something that preys on my mind too much,” he said. “I suppose I’m running out of time a bit now though with only half of the season left!”
Ryan was talking to ManUtd.com, PA Sport and Absolute Radio.
"The likes of me and Scholesy probably play fewer matches than a lot of the players but we know we have to be ready when we’re called upon."
