Striker looks to Manchester United legend for inspiration

Barnsley striker Andy Gray may have broken through the 100 goal barrier with his brace that sealed a 2-0 win over Coventry on Saturday but the former Nottingham Forest and Sheffield United hitman is in no mood to now take it easy.

Gray turns 34 next month and is probably past his prime which seemed to come in the early noughties during goal laden spells with Bradford, Sunderland and Burnley, but after grabbing his second and third goals of the season he feels he still has much to offer- using Manchester United’s 37 year old Welsh winger Giggs who has scored 110 goals in a glittering career with the Old Trafford club as proof age is not always a barrier.

He told Sky Sports News:

 "It's a nice achievement to reach the 100 league goal mark and there are a few left in me.

"I look at people like Ryan Giggs and I think I can keep on going like that, maybe for another four years. I feel fitter than I've ever done."

Gray has scored 16 goals in 71 games for The Reds since joining in August 2009.
