Ryan Giggs distracts Paul Scholes with pinpoint pass during his BT Sport commentary (Video)

Like the good old days...


Having played alongside each other for over two decades, it appears Ryan Giggs still can’t resist the urge to pick out Paul Scholes with a pass.

Out of the two of them, it was Scholes who forged more of a reputation down the years for his pinpoint passing – but, judging by this, Giggs wasn’t too bad at it either.

Since ending their playing days, Giggs has taken up a role as Louis van Gaal’s assistant at United, whereas Scholes now works as a pundit for BT Sport. Ahead of Manchester United’s Champions League clash with PSV Eindhoven, the pair crossed paths.

While the cameras were filming Paul Scholes’ pre-match discussion with his BT colleagues, Giggs is seen in the background, rolling a ball to his former teammate.

It hardly takes Scholes’ head off, but does just enough to distract him.
