Giggs misses United training

Ryan Giggs misses a United training session amid an ongoing media storm.

Ryan Giggs was absent from Man Utd's open training session this morning.

The midfielder was yesterday identified by an MP as the footballer who had taken out an injunction to prevent the media from reporting details of an alleged affair he had with former Big Brother contestant Imogen Thomas.

Giggs is thought to be injury free but still missed the session at the club's Carrington complex ahead of Saturday's Champions League final against Barcelona.

Asked how important Giggs was to the side at a press conference this morning, manager Alex Ferguson responded: "All the players are important to us."
