Manchester United veteran, Ryan Giggs, made his 999th club appearance at the weekend as he helped the league leaders beat relegation threatened Queens Park Rangers. 

To top off the impressive landmark, the Welshman even managed to get himself on the scoresheet as he netted his second goal of the season.

It is expected that Giggs will make his 1,000th appearance in football when Manchester United host Norwich City at the weekend and it will see him join an illustrious club of people to reach the landmark in the English game. Giggs will join; Peter Shilton, Ray Clemence, Pat Jennings, David Seaman, Tony Ford and Graham Alexander.

The 39-year-old is the only player to be able to say that he has featured in every single Premier League campaign and he is also the only one who can boast about scoring in every single season as well.

It was back in 1991 when Giggs made his debut for Manchester United as a second half substitute, but unfortunately he was not able to prevent his side from losing on the day 2-0 to Everton.

As the most experienced player at Manchester United, we look into how old his current team-mates were when he made his club debut, with two players not even being born!
