Hull City manager Steve Bruce has said that he would be willing to sign Ryan Giggs in a playing capacity in the summer.
The former Wales international is likely to hang up his boots at the end of the season, as he is 40 and is out of contract at Manchester United in June.
The winger is currently in charge of the Red Devils on an interim basis following the dismissal of David Moyes as manager last month and will lead his team out to take on Hull at Old Trafford in the Premier League on Tuesday evening.
Speaking ahead of the encounter, Bruce said that he would be willing to help his former United teammate see out his final days of his career with the Tigers.
‘He can come and see out his days at the KC Stadium, playing in the Europa League’, Sky Sports quotes the 53-year-old as saying. ‘If he's available on a free, I'd take him’.
Bruce, though, was just joking and was not serious; the Englishman made the comments in jest. Giggs himself has said that he does not want to play for any other club and has hinted that he will be looking to move into full-time management in the summer when United eventually find a permanent man for the Old Trafford hotseat.
But can Giggs really carry on playing? Can the veteran still continue to contribute to the United team? Probably not. Giggs’ stellar career in which he has won everything he possibly could in club football is over.
