Salford Reds eye Giggs signing

United star Ryan Giggs expected to be at Salford's game tonight against Saints as guest of Red Devils owner Marwan Koukash

Salford Red Devils bosses want Manchester United star Ryan Giggs to become an ambassador for the club.

Local lad Giggs, who is a keen rugby league fan, has been invited to the AJ Bell Stadium tonight for Salford’s clash with Saints as a VIP guest of owner Marwan Koukash.

The Premier League’s most decorated footballer played schoolboy rugby league in Salford with Reds’ skipper Adrian Morley and his brother Chris.

Salford bosses have been working closely with their United counterparts in recent months, forging links between the two clubs. The United legend is seen as a perfect sporting ambassador to help promote the club and bolster the fan base.

Last year, Giggs supplied the foreword for Morley’s autobiography.
