Former Toon Skipper Says 'Tear Up Birth Certificates'

Former Toon skipper Scott Parker points to Ryan Giggs as the reason why no player should be getting too worked up about dates on the birth certificates.

The Tottenham midfielder watched 39-year-old Giggs produce a virtuoso performance against Real Madrid a couple of weeks ago.

And he believes that provided all the proof needed to ignore those pesky dates of birth.

Scott Parker: "I don't get the age one really.

"People are too hell-bent on age, whether it's bringing players through or others being too old.

"If someone is good enough and playing at their best, you pick them.

"Maybe it's because I am 32, but I saw Ryan Giggs playing against Real Madrid in the Champions League. He was doing more running than anyone else.

"I don't buy into the debate at all."
