A television showing the euphoric scenes at the Etihad Stadium was playing inside the press room as Giggs took his seat - leading the Welshman to moan: “You couldn’t turn that off, could you, flipping heck”.
Giggs had just drawn his fourth - and final - match in charge of the Red Devils. United produced another lacklustre performance on the south-coast, but secured a point thanks to Juan Mata's excellent free-kick. However, last season's Premier League champions missed out on a Europa League spot as Tottenham sealed sixth place with a convincing 3-0 win over Aston Villa.
Manchester City, meanwhile, were crowned Premier League champions for the second time in three seasons after recording a comfortable 2-0 win against West Ham at the Etihad Stadium. Goals from Samir Nasri and Vincent Kompany meant City had done enough to beat second-placed Liverpool to the 2013/14 title.
Manchester United are expected to strengthen their squad significantly this summer in order to close the gap on their local rivals. Reports claim the Red Devils have already submitted a £27m bid for Southampton and England left-back Luke Shaw, while Dutch coach Louis van Gaal is expected to be named as the club's next permanent manager later this week.
