Middlesbrough want Ryan Giggs to succeed Steve Agnew
MANCHESTER UNITED legend Ryan Giggs is on the shortlist to be Middlesbrough's next manager, reports claim.
Giggs has been out of work since leaving Manchester United last summer.
The former Wales international spent two years as Louis van Gaal's assistant - helping the club win the FA Cup last season.
However, the appointment of Jose Mourinho as manager saw Giggs leave Old Trafford.
The 43-year-old was wanted by Swansea earlier in the season, but they opted to appoint Bob Bradley instead.
But The Sun claim Giggs is now on Middlesbrough's shortlist.
Boro look destined to go down this season, sitting six points adrift of safety with three games to go.
Steve Agnew succeeded Aitor Karanka in March but has recorded just one win at the Riverside.
Despite chairman Steve Gibson hoping Agnew would keep them up, the current Boro boss looks set to leave at the end of the season.
Giggs' managerial career spanned just four games after United axed David Moyes in 2014.
During that time he clocked up wins over Norwich and Hull, but failed to beat Sunderland and Southampton.
