Rocking Roo will strike for Man U against Blackpool: Veteran Giggs

January 25, 2011 - London

Manchester United veteran Ryan Giggs has warned Blackpool, which is Indian owned, that goal-shy striker Wayne Rooney is ready to rock.

Though Rooney has just scored once from open play - three in total - for his club this season, Giggs believes it is only a matter of time before the floodgates open again.

The Sun quoted Giggs, as saying: "As a goal scorer you want to be getting goals but his overall play has been good - his cross for my goal against Birmingham was brilliant. As long as the team is doing well, that's the main thing. And we know that sooner or later Wayne will start scoring."

Defender John O'Shea added: "Wayne will soon be back on the goal trail because of his quality. I'm sure the chances like the one he missed towards the back post against Birmingham will be flying in no time."

Manchester United are still unbeaten in the league this term and maintain hopes of emulating Arsenal's 2004 'Invincibles'.

Giggs, who has made a record 850 appearances for Manchester United, said: "For us to go unbeaten so far is a great achievement - it shows a lot of character."
