Ryan Giggs father tells son he is not man enough after getting Wales job

The father of the former Manchester United boss has taken a swipe at the winger

Speaking after Giggs was appointed as Wales manager on a a four-year contract, Danny Wilson told The Sun: 'I should be the proudest dad in the world, as happy as a lark by what he's achieved - but I am ashamed of him.

'I can't even bring myself to use his name - I refer to him as the ex-footballer.'

Giggs' father, Danny Wilson, was a professional rugby league player for teams such as Widnes and Swinton and making five appearances for Wales.


When he split from his wife, Lynne, the Giggs brothers chose their mother's surname over Wilson.

'When I changed my name, I was telling the world that I wanted to be known as my mother's son, that I belonged to her family,' Giggs once told the New York Times. 'I am prepared to leave my father out of my life because it hurts my mum and my grandparents.'

News of Giggs' affair with his sister-in-law emerged in 2011, after it emerged the Manchester United hero had also had an affair with former Big Brother contestant Imogen Thomas.

He paid £150,000 for a gagging order over his tryst with Thomas but was eventually exposed in parliament by then Liberal Democrat MP John Hemming, who used parliamentary privilege to break the court order.


Natasha Giggs also claimed she aborted the Giggs' baby shortly before she married his brother Rhodri.

Giggs finally divorced his own wife, Stacey, last November after finally splitting in 2014.

But father Wilson says his son, 44, has shown no remorse for the pain his actions have caused to his family.

'As the eldest he should have been watching his brother's back - not stabbing him in it.

'He cheated in the worst possible way and is not man enough to apologise for it.'


Rhodri gave his version of events in an appearance on This Morning in 2015.

'Ryan denied it,' Rhodri said. 'It was bizarre, all kind of emotions. Numbness, shock and disbelief. I said to him I had texts and pictures and that was when he admitted it. He said "it was about sex, nothing more, nothing less."

'I just felt sorry for him. He had a nice wife, nice children, nice home, nice life. He obviously wasn't happy with it.'

After being unveiled as Wales boss on Monday, Giggs dismissed scrutiny over his own international record as 'unfair'.

Giggs was regularly criticised for withdrawing from Wales squads - particularly for friendly matches - during a career where he played 64 times for his country.
