Ryan Giggs spotted clothes shopping as ex-Man Utd star's court case leaves Wales in managerial limbo ahead of World Cup

RYAN GIGGS has been out clothes shopping with a friend as he awaits the beginning of his court case on August 8.

The former Manchester United winger remains suspended by Wales pending his domestic abuse trial.


Giggs has been accused of controlling and coercive behaviour against ex Kate Greville, 36, between August 2017 and November 2020 – as well as assault causing her actual bodily harm.

The suspended Wales manager is also accused of common assault against Greville's sister Emma on November 1, 2020.

Giggs denies all allegations.

Robert Page has been in interim charge since Giggs' arrest in November 2020.

While awaiting his trial, Giggs has been spotted out in Cheshire with a pal.

The 48-year-old wore a grey quarter zip jumper and black trousers as he shopped.

Giggs is still in the dark as to whether he will be able to manage Wales at the World Cup in Qatar later this year.

The Welsh booked their place in the finals by beating Ukraine 1-0 on Sunday courtesy of Andriy Yarmolenko's own goal.

SunSport understands the FAW are playing the waiting game on their sensitive managerial situation with Giggs’ court case due to start in Manchester on August 8.

Wales have been drawn in Group B alongside England, Iran and the United States.
