Ryan Giggs - the most decorated player in English football history - will celebrate the 21st anniversary of his Manchester United debut this weekend.

He scored the winner in injury time last week as United beat Norwich City 2-1 at Carrow Road on his 900th appearance for the club.

The 38-year-old Welsh winger has won four FA Cups, two Champions Leagues and has 12 Premier League winners medals. A one-club man, Giggs holds the record for the most competitive appearances for the Red Devils.

He was awarded an OBE in 2007 for services to football and won BBC Sports Personality of the Year in 2009.

Take a look at some of the highlights from Ryan Giggs's illustrious playing career for Manchester United and Wales, set to the number one singles in the UK pop charts at the time.
