Giggs lauds Scholes impact

13 May 2013 12:53

Ryan Giggs has hailed retiring Manchester United team-mate Paul Scholes as 'amazing.'

Scholes played his final game in United's 2-1 victory over Swansea City at Old Trafford on Sunday, after almost 20 years playing in United's first-team.

And Giggs, who will play into his 40th year next season, was full of praise for the midfielder's impact at the club.

"You've seen him today - he's not played for I don't know how long and he comes in and his little five-yard passes and 30-yard passes, plus his range of passing, was just unbelievable," he said.

"He's just a pleasure to play with - someone who, as a forward player, you knew if you made a run, he would play you in.

"You wouldn't even have to break stride as you knew the pace of the pass would be perfect and he'd put it where you wanted it to be put.

"He is just an amazing player and an amazing person."

Scholes originally retired from the club in 2011 and joined United's coaching staff, but reversed his decision in January 2012 to help alleviate an injury crisis at the club.

He signed a one-year contract extension in the off-season, before deciding to call time on his illustrious career.
