‘I’m Ashamed Of My Son’
Ryan Giggs’ father says he is ‘ashamed’ of his son, who he says stabbed brother Rhodri in the back after having an affair with his wife, Natasha, and not apologising.
Speaking after Giggs was appointed as Wales manager on 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.’
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 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 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.’
