Players who have never been given a red card

Sometimes players receive a red card when they lose their temper or do something harmful during a match but check out these five footballers who were never shown a red card throughout their professional club careers.

1.Ryan Giggs

Giggs is one of Manchester United’s most loyal players ever as he never featured for any other club. He played 963 games for Manchester United, including 672 in England and 157 in Europe was never ordered off the pitch. However, he was sent off once while playing for Wales, in a World Cup qualifier against Norway. Otherwise, his record would be spotless!
