'If It's Football, It's Vital'

Giggs Pleased As Unbeaten Record Remains Intact

Ryan Giggs kept United top of Group E with a well-struck header at Celtic. The 1-1 draw means United win the group if they win at Villarreal so it's been a good evening overall but the Welshman admitted the players were disappointed with their first-half display.

'It wasn`t a really bad performance in the first half, we just knew that we could do better,' Giggs said.

"But we came out in the second half and kept Celtic pinned back. We knew the chances would come, it was just a case of taking them. Celtic made it hard for us, they got men behind the ball.'

'We knew that we just had to keep creating chances, whether it was from crosses, one-twos on the edge of the box, or just keeping the tempo going. That`s what we did."


Giggs added that he felt United would have deserved to win - but we're still on course to go through. And I would add that our unbeaten run in the Champions League now stretches to 17 games, only 3 off Ajax's record. That's definitely a positive thing.
