Arise Sir Ryan says Rooney

Wayne Rooney wants Ryan Giggs to be KNIGHTED.

Giggs set up all three goals in Manchester United's Champions League triumph over Chelsea.

Roo said: "It won't be long before we call him Sir Ryan. For me he's a genius, incredible. What he has done at United, what he does for the younger players is absolutely fantastic.

"I don't know what he's eating or drinking but I'm going to ask him to give me some."

Welsh wizard Giggs, 37, was awarded an OBE in 2007 and is on course for a 12th Premier League title at United.

He played the full 90 minutes in both legs of their Champions League quarter-final 3-1 aggregate win over Chelsea. And after a club-record 870 appearances for the Red Devils, he shows no signs of slowing down.

Giggs looks set to star in the Wembley FA Cup semi-final against City on Saturday.

Rooney, 25, misses the clash as he serves the second of his two-game ban for swearing into a TV camera.

He added: "As everyone knows it's been a tough season for me but since the New Year I've been really pleased with my form.

"I've started to score again. I'm playing a different position now and I'm really enjoying it."
