Sam hopes Giggs gives the Boleyn a miss


MaccaandallardyceSam Allardyce watched Ryan Giggs turn on the style against Olyympiakos in midweek and today declared: ” I hope he doesn’t play against us.”

The 40 year old rolled back the years to push his team into the Champions League quarter finals with a sometimes magical display.

And it has obviously put the frighteners on the boss who said: ““After seeing their display on Wednesday, I hope Ryan Giggs doesn’t play.”

And he told The Sun:  “I have to be a little bit concerned about how well they played against West Brom, winning 3-0 in their last away game.

“We’ll try to burst their bubble. Obviously it’s a big challenge — but normally we do well against United.”
