Giggs signs on for another year with Man U

6:22 am on 20 February 2011

Manchester United's long-serving midfielder Ryan Giggs has signed a one-year contract extension with the English Premier League football giants.

37-year-old Giggs had already signalled his intention to prolong his Old Trafford career into a 21st season, and the club's confirmed the deal has now been signed.

United manager Sir Alex Ferguson has used Giggs selectively in recent seasons, although the evergreen midfielder has maintained his knack of making important contributions to the United cause.

His exquisite pass set up Nani's opening goal in the Manchester derby last week, a match United won to maintain their healthy lead at the top of the table.

If United win the league it will give Giggs a record 12 league winners medals.

Giggs has made more than 800 appearances for United and recently played his 600th Premier League game.
