Stoke City midfielder Rory Delap is still an important part of first team plans insists Potters boss Tony Pulis.

And the 34-year-old long-throw specialist has been tipped to emulate Ryan Giggs, and continue playing in the Barclays Premier League for years to come.

"He's had a fantastic season for us," said Pulis. "And there's no reason why he can't go on.

"He's a naturally fit player and is making as many appearances as Ryan Giggs, which says it all.

"If they look after themselves, there's no reason why they can't carry on delivering the goods."


Despite suffering from a recurring back injury which has hampered parts of his season, Delap remains an integral part of the Stoke midfield and featured in the recent FA Cup final for the Potters at Wembley.

Having just completed his fourth full season at the Britannia Stadium, Delap has no intention of calling time on his Stoke career, something that has been met with appreciation from Pulis.

"Rory is very much part of the fabric this club has been built on. His character and his attitude have been absolutely fantastic.

"And as far as I'm concerned, he's still got a massive part to play."
