Welsh midfielder Ryan Giggs won his 13th Premier League crown last night, and earned the accolade of "legend" from his teammates.

The 39-year-old played a full 90 minutes, setting up two goals, as Manchester United beat Aston Villa 3-0 last night to secure the title.

He is already the most decorated player in British football history, and this was his 25th major title. Earlier this season, he passed 1,000 senior career appearances.

Midfield colleague Michael Carrick said: "It is sensational that he is still able to do that after all this time. It is not just physical, it is mental, having the drive and desire to do it every day."

"Ryan is out there training every day. The standard he has set is unbelievable. He is a legend. It is a throwaway comment too often. But he is the legend really. It is a pleasure to play with him and work with him every day."
