Wigan 0-2 Man Utd: Giggs goal seals United’s title

Record-holder Ryan Giggs marked a lifetime’s loyalty with the best present possible as he delivered another Premier League title to Manchester United as they beat Wigan 2-0.

United were in front but needing calming despite Cristiano Ronaldo’s first-half penalty when Giggs kept his nerve to coolly slot home Wayne Rooney’s through ball.

A quarter of an hour earlier, Giggs’ had been introduced for his 758th United appearance, equalling a milestone left by Sir Bobby Charlton that will surely be eclipsed in Moscow on May 21.

But all Giggs will care about is adding to a medal collection that continues to expand, containing all 10 championships won under Sir Alex Ferguson, part of an overall United haul of 17, one adrift of Liverpool, who Ferguson has vowed to overtake.

Few would begrudge the Red Devils their latest success, even if the free-flowing attack that has propelled them to glory by two points over Chelsea – who drew 1-1 with Bolton – was strangely muted.

But United were not to be denied and 10 minutes from time, Rooney provided the killer pass for Giggs to wrap up yet another title and allow minds to wander towards the Luzhniki Stadium in 10 days’ time when they intend to leave Chelsea heartbroken once more.

As a result the Red Devils have secured their tenth title in the Premier League era and their seventeenth League Championship of all time, moving them just one behind Liverpool’s record of eighteen triumphs. It is the first time that the Old Trafford giants have lifted back-to-back titles since 2001.
