He told The Sun: "I wasn't aware of this latest one. It will soon be forgotten.

"I am just pleased to be involved in performances like this one.

"The quarter-finals of the Champions League — you want to play in these games. And when you finish, these are the games that you are going to miss."

The veteran also admitted he enjoys the final part of the season as it is the most testing with important matches coming every week.

Giggs revealed that he and the United squad are eargerly anticipating their clash with bitter rivals Manchester City in the FA Cup semi-final and is hopeful of victory.

He added: "It is what you want at this stage of the season — big game after big game.

"You don't get many bigger than the semi-finals of the FA Cup at Wembley against City.

"We will be up for that and we can't wait."
