Manchester United assistant manager Ryan Giggs has BANNED Manchester City players from his restaurant! The Daily Star says Giggs said he would not let the club's arch rivals book a table at George's in Worsley, Manchester, which he opened seven months ago.

Giggs, 40, said the reason was that one of his business partners in the trendy restaurant was a "massive" United fan who attended every match and could not stand to serve City's players.

The ban was revealed on Twitter by United We Stand fanzine boss Andy Mitten.

But Giggs's former team-mate Gary Neville, 39, with whom he owns Café Football in London, said he would allow City's stars to have a meal there.

"Of course, they just overpay and leave early!! Perfect for a restaurant! Haha,'' Neville tweeted.
