Ryan Giggs enjoyed a night out with pals on Saturday evening in Hale, as he was joined by former teammate Nicky Butt for the evening.

The former Manchester United and Wales footballer, 48, enjoyed dinner and drinks at Italian restaurant Cibo Hale.

And his outing comes after the sportsman learnt last month that a retrial has been ordered over allegations of domestic abuse against his ex-girlfriend Kate Greville.

While Nicky, who was a midfielder for Manchester United, matched his long-time pal as he opted for a navy shirt.

Sitting at a table with red wine, beer and sparkling water, the pair were joined by another friend as they appeared deep in conversation.  

Nicky and Ryan have been friends for years, after the latter signed for Manchester United in 1991 – with Nicky joining two years later.

Last month Ryan said he was ‘obviously disappointed’ that a retrial has been ordered over allegations of domestic abuse against his ex-girlfriend Kate, as he faces waiting at least ten months to learn his fate. 

In a statement he thanked ‘my legal team, my mum, my children, my girlfriend Zara, as well as my closest friends, for their support throughout this period’. 

The former Wales coach is accused of assaulting Kate, 38, and her 26-year-old sister Emma amid a booze-fuelled argument at his multi-million pound home in Worsley, Greater Manchester.

He also stands accused of coercive and controlling behaviour towards PR executive Kate over three years – charges which he denies. 

The retrial decision came after the Crown Prosecution Service decided it would pursue a prosecution against the ex footballer after a jury failed to reach a verdict following a three-week trial. 

Ryan said in a statement: ‘After more than three weeks in court I am obviously disappointed that a retrial has been ordered. My not guilty plea remains in relation to all charges. I am confident that justice will eventually be done and my name will be cleared of all the allegations.

‘I would like to thank my legal team, my mum, my children, my girlfriend Zara, as well as my closest friends, for their support throughout this period. I understand the level of interest and the scrutiny around this case but I would like to ask that my and my family’s privacy is respected in the weeks and months ahead.’

During a brief hearing at Manchester Crown Court, the judge approved a prosecution application for a second trial. Giggs was excused attendance.

 Peter Wright QC, prosecuting, told Judge Hilary Manley: ‘We do seek a re-trial in respect of Mr Giggs.

‘The matter has been considered at a senior level within the Crown Prosecution Service and also the willingness of the complainant to give evidence, although that is not determinative on the matter, has also been canvassed.

‘They indicate a preparedness so to do. Consequently we do invite you to fix a date for the re-trial of this matter.’

Judge Manley fixed a trial date, on the next date available to both prosecution and defence lawyers, of July 31, 2023 for a trial estimated to last three or four weeks.
