“He’s got a big game the following Wednesday against Paris Saint-Germain away, I’ll speak to Gareth later, “Giggs said.

” He’s done three 90 minutes now, or nearly 90 minutes in his last Real Madrid game. We’ll look at it.

“He looked fit the other night, he was everywhere, working hard, sprinting back – it was brilliant. He is the example.

“We won’t treat it like a training session but he would not have done anything yesterday and today if he wasn’t going to be involved. We’ll see if he can play a part in the game, from the start or coming on as a sub.

“We’re not being stupid, as well. Given that he is two weeks behind everyone else. He’s not got six or seven games in him.”

Giggs says he understands the criticism directed at him after his side left it late to snatch a narrow win against Azerbaijan, but told fans not to expect big victories as he gets to grips with his strongest line-up.

“The problem was that it was really good or really bad, we have to balance that.”

“You don’t of ten win 4-0 in international football.

“I made a big effort on Friday to play players who are fit and then you can have an impact sub like Jonny Williams, who can change games. “
