Manchester United's Ryan Giggs is set to be out for "a couple of weeks" according to Sir Alex Ferguson after the veteran winger suffered a hamstring injury in today's 2-2 draw with Bolton Wanderers.

Both Giggs and English striker Wayne Rooney were substituted in the second half at the Reebok Stadium during a match which saw United leapfrog Arsenal into second place in the Premier League.

Ryan is the most serious, it's a hamstring and I'm afraid he will be out for a couple of weeks.

"Ryan is the most serious, it's a hamstring and I'm afraid he will be out for a couple of weeks," Ferguson said before adding he expected Rooney to be ready for the midweek UEFA Champions League tie away to Valencia.

"I'm sure Wayne will get ready for Wednesday."
