Giggs Wins PFA POTY

Manchester United icon Ryan Giggs has been named tonight as the PFA Player of the Year, with the veteran midfielder's efforts in the twilight of his career being applauded by fellow professionals.
The player, deployed in a variety of roles by his club manager Alex Ferguson this season, beat off competition from Nemanja Vidic, Rio Ferdinand, Edwin van der Sar and Cristiano Ronaldo, as well as Liverpool's Steven Gerrard to claim the award.
"It's right up there, with personal accolades it's the best to have as it's voted by your fellow players," he told The Guardian.
I've been fortunate to win a lot of trophies, I won the young player award twice but this is the big one."
United have six players in the team of the year, but Wayne Rooney is perhaps one surprising omission from the line-up.
Premier League team of the year: Edwin van der Sar; Glen Johnson, Rio Ferdinand, Nemanja Vidic, Patrice Evra; Ashley Young, Steven Gerrard, Ryan Giggs, Cristiano Ronaldo; Nicolas Anelka, Fernando Torres
