MANCHESTER UNITED MANAGER Alex Ferguson believes that veteran midfielder Ryan Giggs can play for another season.

The 38-year-old kept up his record of scoring in every Premier League campaign with a goal in the 5-0 win over Fulham last week, with little to suggest that he is ready to follow Gary Neville and Paul Scholes into retirement.

“I think Ryan can play another year,” the Scot said.

“There is no evidence at this moment in time that his energy, stamina or speed are decreasing. In fact, it’s exactly the same as it was the last two or three years. It’s amazing.

“I know it’s mid-season now and it all depends on what Ryan thinks about his future, too.

“He knows he can’t go on forever, we know he can’t go on forever, but he can play for another year.”
