- The Welshman has ignored the Portuguese in his top team-mates list
- Rooney, Scholes, Solskjaer all featured in Giggs’ top eleven team-mates
Manchester United legend Ryan Giggs has ignored Cristiano Ronaldo in his top team-mates of all time, but included Paul Scholes and Wayne Rooney, SunSport reports.
Nemanja Vidic and the Juventus striker are the surprise names not to make the 46-year-old’s top Manchester United team-mates list.
In considering the number of games played alongside Giggs, Ronaldo and Vidic are ousted by the likes of Ole Gunnar Solskjaer and Mikael Silvestre.
Giggs had a glorious career at Manchester United having played a mammoth 963 games, winning 25 major trophies including 13 Premier League and 2 Champions League titles.
In his top team-mates list, a huge number of those that featured were top stars from the Sir Alex Ferguson era.
Top on the list is his other pair in the midfield, the legendary Paul Scholes, who made a staggering 479 appearances next to the winger for United.
His business partner and long-term team mate Gary Neville as well as Roy Keane made the list.

Legit.ng earlier reported that two-time African footballer of the year El hadji Diouf has claimed that Nigeria’s Austin Jay Jay Okocha would have been the world’s best player of all time if he was not African.
The Senegalese legend and the ex-Super Eagles captain were teammates at Bolton Wanderers between 2004 and 2006 before Okocha moved to Qatar.
Okocha who featured for Bolton between 2002 and 2006 scored 14 goals in his 124 appearances including a famous strike against West Ham United which was voted team goal of the season.
Diouf arrived the Reebok stadium in 2004 and then went on to score a total of 24 goals for the club with Okocha captaining the side.
The pair were sensational for the Premier League club at that time as they helped the club to their first cup final in nine years where they finished runners-up in the 2004 Football League Cup to Middlesbrough.
While listing his best eleven team mates, Diouf also chose ex-Arsenal forward Nicolas Anelka as his top 9.
