Rooney, 28, missed their Manchester United’s defeat by Sunderland with a virus and a slight groin strain and with two games left of a dire season for the Old Trafford club, Giggs is hoping that his top scorer can fight illness and injury to play in their final two matches this season.
“I hope he will play again this season, we will keep monitoring him and see how he is for Tuesday,” he said.
“Hopefully he will be back.”
Giggs was handed a surprise boost by the quick return of Robin van Persie from injury at the weekend. He has been missing for a couple of months after injuring his knee in United’s 3-0 win over Olympiakos earlier in the season.
He came off the substitutes bench on Saturday but could not grab an equaliser as United fell to their 12th defeat in the Premier League this season.
Rooney’s return would help United end the season well as he’s led the way in goals (17) and created the most chances (56) at the club this season.
Rooney has made two defensive errors this season which is the most at United alongside Nani, Chris Smalling, Jonny Evans and Nemanja Vidic.
