London, Apr.28 (ANI): A campaign to give Manchester United ace Ryan Giggs a knighthood has got the backing from two Members of Parliament.
Communities and Local Government Secretary Hazel Blears, 52, and Shadow Home Secretary Chris Grayling, 47, both said the Welsh winger deserved the honour, reports the Daily Express.
Giggs, 35, was named Professional Footballers’ Association Player of the Year on Sunday.
Salford MP Ms Blears, said: “Ryan Giggs, as well as an outstanding record on the pitch, has a proud record of voluntary work off the pitch, including helping young players in Salford. He is a positive role model in so many ways that he deserves the recognition of a knighthood.”
And Manchester United fan Mr Grayling added: “Ryan Giggs is the outstanding British footballer of the last generation.” (ANI)
