ShareSir Alex Ferguson has attempted to impose his own gagging order on a journalist who dared to ask him about Ryan Giggs at Manchester United's Champions League press conference. United manager Ferguson is trying to minimise the fuss surrounding his most experienced player after Giggs was finally named as the footballer who had obtained a High Court injunction to prevent details of his affair with reality TV star Imogen Thomas being published. Ferguson made sure the Welshman did not train in front of the cameras, though Giggs did play in Gary Neville testimonial at Old Trafford. But the United boss reacted with disdain when Associated Press reporter Rob Harris asked him how important Giggs would be against Barcelona at Wembley on Saturday. Anger management: Sir Alex Ferguson sits next to Karen Shotbolt at Carrington The whispered conversation went follows: Harris: 'The most important experienced player in the Champions League is obviously Ryan Giggs. How important is he for the team on Saturday?' Ferguson: 'All the players are important to us.' Ferguson (to press officer): 'The guy that asked the question about Giggsy... the press conference.'
