Giggs proud of Prem record

Manchester United stalwart Ryan Giggs has revealed his delight at prolonging his record-breaking scoring streak.

The 35-year-old midfielder lashed home an unstoppable free-kick against Tottenham on Saturday to remain the only man to have notched in every Premier League season.

His impressive strike helped the Red Devils recover from going a goal down at White Hart Lane to claim a 3-1 success.

The United veteran is pleased to have made his mark on the 2009/10 campaign, but insists there is still more to come from him this term.

"I'm proud that I have scored in every Premier League season but hopefully that is not it," said the Welshman.

"I don't want it to be my goal for the season. Hopefully I will score more.

"I don't score as many as I used to but I try and score some important ones. The goal against Tottenham was probably one of them."

Giggs' goal cancelled out Jermain Defoe's first-minute opener, while Anderson and Wayne Rooney put the seal on a hard-fought three points.

United also saw Paul Scholes sent off during the second half against Spurs, making their success all the more notable.

The victory takes Sir Alex Ferguson's side to second place in the Premier League table and Giggs feels their fine form of late has sent a signal of intent to those who doubted their capabilities to mount a title challenge this season.

"It's well documented that we've lost Cristiano (Ronaldo) and Carlos (Tevez) but we have great players here and it gives you confidence when you come to a place like Spurs and get a result," he added.
