Ryan Giggs has revealed that Wayne Rooney remains an injury doubt for Manchester United’s clash with Hull City on Tuesday.

The England international missed Saturday’s 1-0 defeat by Sunderland at Old Trafford after suffering from a virus and a hamstring strain.

He’s not quite recovered. We’ll continue to monitor him

And interim boss Giggs confirmed that the 28-year-old will continue to be monitored in the build-up to United’s final home game of the season.

“Wayne is probably struggling for the game,” Giggs told MUTV. “He’s not quite recovered. We’ll continue to monitor him.”

When asked about the fitness of Jonny Evans and Rafael, Giggs said that Evans probably won’t play again this season, but added: “Rafa has trained in the last few days and looks good. He could be involved in the remaining two games.”

Giggs, who took over from sacked David Moyes until the end of the season at United, also revealed that he may give himself a run-out at Old Trafford against the Tigers.

“I’ll have to take that into consideration but I also want to win the game as manager as well,” he said.

“I want to do what’s best to win the game and not just make room for me in the starting line-up or on the bench, which I won’t do.

“Of course, the perfect scenario is me coming on and scoring a goal, the winning goal, and hopefully everyone will be happy but it doesn’t always work like that. We’ll have to wait and see what happens on the night.”
