David Moyes has labelled Ryan Giggs a "freak" after the Welshman put in a fine performance in Manchester United's 3-0 Champions League victory over Olympiacos last night. 

The Red Devils overturned a 2-0 first leg deficit as they reached the quarter-finals of Europe's elite competition and Giggs was at the heart of United's fine display. 

Despite being 40-years-old, the Welshman played they full 90 minutes and put on a great show at the Theatre of Dreams. 

And his manager David Moyes hailed his performance and fitness levels after the victory. , the As reported by the Daily Star, the Red Devils boss told reporters: "I thought Giggsy was fantastic, he really was.

"The passes he made for the two goals, his general play and more importantly his general fitness.

"Sometimes you might be thinking, he'll need to come off after 60 minutes but he's a freak he really is. He's something different."

Giggs and Manchester United will now be awaiting tomorrow's Champions League draw as the Red Devils target European success this season. 

Moyes' attention will turn to his side's domestic challenge this weekend as the Red Devils take on West Ham United at Upton Park. 

And after playing the full 90-minutes at Old Trafford last night, it's unlikely that Giggs will feature against Sam Allardyce's side.

However the Welshman could be in line to take on Manchester City on Tuesday night as Moyes' side look to climb the Premier League table.
