Giggs told the Manchester Evening News: “It doesn’t matter if there is a huge fuss again, I am not breaking the rules so I would do it.
“I asked the referee if could I take the kick quickly against Lille. The referee came over and said ‘do you want the whistle?’ and I said ‘no, I’ll take a quick one’.
“I was pleased to see it go in – if it hadn’t I probably would have had a few words off the boss.
“The last time I scored a goal like that, no one thought about walking off the pitch. I was just amazed by what was happening around us; we didn’t know what was going on.”
