March 1991, Manchester United v Everton

Giggs makes his debut, replacing Brian McClair in a  defeat against Everton,  marking the start of a legendary career at Old Trafford.


October 1997,Manchester United v Juventus

Having made something of a habit of scoring against Italian giants Juventus, this stunning strike  at Old Trafford is arguable the pick of his goals against the 'Old Lady'.



April 1999, Manchester United v Arsenal 

Man United were chasing an unprecedented treble but had to overcome Arsenal in an FA Cup semi-final replay at Villa Park. After losing their captain Roy Keane to a red card, it looked as if the chance had gone, as Arsenal battered them. However, Welsh wizard Giggs picked up the ball in his own half before blitzing through the entire Arsenal defence and coolly finishing past Gunners keeper David Seaman to fire United into the final.


May 2008, Manchester United v Chelsea 

Giggs ensures his second Champions League success in Moscow by scoring a penalty in the deciding shootout in a match which saw him break Sir Bobby Charlton's club appearance record.

 

February 2009, West Ham v Manchester United
Fellow veteran Paul Scholes lays off the the ball on the left, allowing Giggs to cut inside. As the West Ham defence stood off, the winger spotted his opportunity, powering home a shot with his right foot to secure a precious victory on the road to another title.

Ryan's records and many, many more feature in the new Guinness World Records 2013 edition - available worldwide from 13th September 2012.
