Ryan Giggs' Father Has Called His Son A Cheat And A Liar

Ryan Giggs' Father Has Called His Son A Cheat And A Liar
By Paul O'Hara Updated

Ryan Giggs' father, the ex-dual code rugby player Danny Wilson, has given an interview to the Sun in which he claims that Giggs is a cheat and a liar who cannot be trusted.

It was revealed in 2011 that Giggs had had an eight-year affair with his brother Rhodri's wife Natasha, which included an abortion after he had got her pregnant. Giggs was married to wife Stacey at the time and the pair have since reconciled, despite also cheating on her with former Miss Wales Imogen Thomas.

Said Wilson:

To be a manager you have to have trust.

I don’t see how the players can trust him after what he did to his brother. You judge a man by his actions.

If you know him to be a cheat, unfaithful and a liar, how do you trust the man?

He may be respected in his football ability.

But he’s a coward and a mummy’s boy. He’s my son and I know him.

What he’s done to my other son Rhodri — he’s broken him.

Wilson continued by recounting how he only refers to his eldest son as "Number 11", because he apparently can't bring himself to refer to Giggs by name.


I can’t even say his name, that’s how pissed off I am. I went to see him play with Manchester United v Cardiff, three or four months ago.

I went along because he was on the bench, but when he came on the pitch, I left.

Every Cardiff City supporter booed him when he came on — not because he played for United but because of what he did to his brother.

The tirade went on:

He’s dull as dishwater.

He’s got no personality. He bores me to death when he talks.

He’s not cut out to be a manager in my eyes.

Giggs was born Ryan Wilson but adopted adopted his mother's surname two years after Wilson walked out on the family in 1989. He also claimed that Ryan didn't make contact with him after his treatment for prostate cancer last year. He said he was hurt but "not surprised" by the lack of communication.

He only has to apologise and then we can get things moving again and try and get our family back together.

He’s been a good footballer, I know that. We all know that. But when he’s done something wrong he should apologise.

He hasn’t had the balls to come and apologise to me and Rhodri.

He’s got his head up his arse and doesn’t answer to anyone. He’s gutless.

He could have had anything that boy, but he wanted something that didn’t belong to him.

It's a really distasteful situation all round, and one cannot discount a financial motive behind his decision to bring up infidelities that were exposed in 2011.

Meanwhile, Rhodri has said that though he has not forgiven his brother, he does think that Ryan is the right man for the manager's job at United. According to the same title, the current FC United player holds no grudges when it comes to sport. He said:

He'll be a better manager than he is a husband. He's a rubbish brother and even worse husband but I think Ryan's perfect for the United job

His appointment is a good one and it's exciting, shown by the 4-0. I'm pleased for him.

37-year-old Rhodri was last in the news in November, when it was reported that he hopes to play international football for Sierra Leone. He qualifies thanks to Danny Wilson's father, who came from the West African state.
