Rhodri Giggs on Phil Neville: "I don't like him. Never liked him. As a person I think he's rude"

Giggs starred in a genius advert for Paddy Power last week

Rhodri Giggs, the brother of former Manchester United and Wales footballer Ryan, has been in the headlines this past week after appearing in a fantastically constructed advert for bookmakers Paddy Power.

The tongue-in-cheek ad, used to promote Paddy's 'Loyalty Club', went viral on Friday, with hundreds of thousands of people on social media left speechless at what they had witnessed.

It poked fun at Ryan's eight-year long affair with Rhodri's ex-wife Natasha, with plenty of clever quips thrown in throughout to make sure the knife was well and truly stuck in. The tag-line used at the end of the advert read "Loyalty is dead. Live for Rewards." Ouch.

Following the campaign, Rhodri Giggs has revealed which of the players he liked and disliked from the all-star 'Class of 92' treble winning side that his brother featured in for Manchester United in 1999.

In his new Paddy Power blog, Giggs said that he always got along well with Gary Neville and Andy Cole, that Dwight Yorke was a "party animal who worked hard and enjoyed life" and Teddy Sheringham was a "class act".

The 41-year-old also spoke fondly about David Beckham:

"Off the pitch, he was always very nice to me. A top, top bloke. All the attention he got could easily change someone, but it didn’t. All the Class of 92 lot had good parents and had good upbringings, so they were good people.

"Beckham was treated unfairly by United. 100%. The guy never stopped working and never stopped performing. What he did outside the game never affected his football, so I don’t know what the problem was. But there was only one boss at that time."

Giggs revealed that renowned hard man Roy Keane was "a bit of a comedian" who reminded him of Conor McGregor. "He's got the mouth, but he can back it up."

One player the former Salford City winger never clicked with was Phil Neville however, saying that he found the former United and Everton defender a "rude person".

"Pass. I don’t like him. Never liked him. As a person I think he’s rude. Never liked him, never spoke to him and never will," said Giggs at the end of his article.
