GIGGS IN TRIBUTE TO GUNTER

The Football League Paper - - NEWS -

WALES boss Ryan Giggs hailed de­fender Chris Gunter af­ter the Read­ing full-back made a record-break­ing 93rd ap­pear­ance for his coun­try.

The 29-year-old cap­tained Wales in their 1-0 friendly de­feat in Al­ba­nia on Tues­day.

“It’s a shame we couldn’t mark it, this un­be­liev­able achieve­ment, with a pos­i­tive re­sult,” said Giggs.

“What he’s done for Wales, what he’s done for Welsh foot­ball is amaz­ing. It might be a record that never gets beaten. It’s a true show of how ded­i­cated he is, how much he loves play­ing foot­ball. He looks af­ter him­self and he de­serves all the plau­dits he gets for break­ing the record.”
