Ryan Giggs revealed that he would never become the manager of Liverpool – and Reds fans reacted amusingly on Twitter, responding that it would never happen anyway.
The Manchester United legend, who spent the duration of his 24-year playing career at the Red Devils spoke at the Welsh Community Football Awards, where he emphatically ruled out managing the Merseyside giants.
The former Wales international is looking for a job in management following a spell with United’s coaching staff, but he has been quick to rule out a job on the home side’s touchline at Anfield.
Liverpool fans took to social media following the revelation, with some dismissing it as a non-story and saying it would never happen anyway.
Here are a selection of their messages on Twitter:
It ain't happening. Sorry Margot
