Giggs' first senior trophy arrived in November 1991 as United beat Red Star Belgrade in the European Super Cup final. In the following April, he picked up his second winners' medal as the Reds beat Nottingham Forest in the League Cup final and was voted PFA Young Player of the Year by his peers - an accolade he retained 12 months later. More significantly, 1993 was also the year when Giggs and United won the inaugural Premier League title.

Ryan was an integral part of two Double-winning sides, in 1993/94 and 1995/96, before going one better in 1998/99 by adding the European Cup to the FA Cup and Premier League trophy. His contributions to the Treble-winning campaign included a superb solo goal to win the FA Cup semi-final replay against Arsenal at Villa Park, commonly regarded as one of United's greatest ever goals. Ryan celebrated 10 years at Old Trafford with a testimonial match against Celtic in 2001/02.

A year later he bagged his 100th career goal in the 2-2 draw with Chelsea at Stamford Bridge and became only the second-ever player to play 700 games for United when he helped the Reds to a dramatic 1-0 win over Liverpool at Anfield in March 2007.
