Manchester United manager David Moyes has lauded Ryan Giggs ahead of the midfielder's 40th birthday.

Giggs continues to feature regularly for the Premier League champions - despite the fact that the Welshman turns 40 on November 29.

The Old Trafford hero is likely to make his 952nd appearance for the Red Devils against Cardiff City on Sunday afternoon in his hometown city.

Giggs is the only player to have appeared in every Premier League season and has the most appearances in the top flight of English football.

And Giggs, who is now a member of Manchester United's coaching team, has received high praise from Red Devils boss Moyes.

“The best thing is to say he doesn't play like he's 40 and he doesn't look like he's 40,” said Moyes.

“He's an outstanding player and it's a privilege to be working with him on my staff but also to have him as a player.

“I’ve seen something different since I’ve come here – just how good he is, close up – and it’s incredible.

"It will be great for him to go back to Cardiff and I'm sure the supporters will give him a big cheer.”

Giggs, who came on for the last 12 minutes in Manchester United's last win against Arsenal, could start at the Cardiff City Stadium due to injuries to Michael Carrick and Phil Jones.

Manchester United will be hoping to extend their unbeaten run to 10 games when the two sides meet in the first competitive match since March 1975.
