No official comments have been made by either club. Although speculations suggest that Ryan Giggs missed the Premier League clash due to a family illness.
Social media has been ablaze with the rumors regarding Gigg’s departure. Users have jumped quickly into the bandwagon to share their opinion.
There aren't many certainties in life, but the fact that Ryan Giggs still won't be the Celtic manager in the next 48 hours is one of them.

The news of Ryan Giggs managing Celtic’s may have been enough for the fans of the football club from Glasgow to jump up with joy but it doesn’t look like the Welshman is leaving Old Trafford anytime soon.
Ryan Giggs is the most decorated player in Manchester United’s history and nothing has changed enough at Old Trafford to suggest that the former No. 11 would depart in such a short notice.
United has had a difficult season of late and rumors have been persistent about the departure of current boss Louis Van Gaal. It has been suggested that Giggs could be the next United supremo. However, many feel that the Welshman is still not experienced enough to take over as the Manchester United boss.
However, with Zinedine Zidane taking over Real Madrid recently, anything can happen in the world of football.
