Football legend Ryan Giggs hit back at a Manchester City fan who mocked him about his fling with his sister-in-law.

They clashed as the Manchester United ace stepped off a train.

The fan leaned out of the train window and shouted: “Where you off Giggsy, slipping your brother’s missus one?”

Giggs, 43, replied: “Pardon, you going to your council house?”

A clip of the exchange at Stockport station after last Sunday’s Community Shield was posted on a Man City fan page on Twitter.

Giggs’ reply led to claims he was being dismissive of people living in council houses.

One fan wrote: “Interesting comment, what does he think of the working classes/football fans?”

But another pointed out that the Council House was the name United fans gave to City’s Etihad stadium, which was leased from the council after the 2002 Commonwealth Games in Manchester.

On Friday, dad-of-two Giggs’ wife Stacey, 39, was granted a divorce in London.

The couple tied the knot in September 2007 and have two children.

Their 10-year marriage was rocked by his flings, including an eight-year affair with brother Rhodri’s wife Natasha.

Giggs was born in Cardiff, Wales, in 1973 to ex-rugby league player dad, Danny Wilson and mum, Lynne Giggs.

He spent his early years in the suburb of Ely before moving to Greater Manchester when he was six years old.

As a child, he would play football in the streets outside his family's home.

Giggs has previously described how he was taunted at school because his dad was mixed race and his grandfather was from Sierra Leone.

He revealed how racist bullies made his life a misery for five years, adding that he "wouldn't wish it on anyone".

Giggs made his professional debut for United in 1991 and went on to play for the club's first team for more than two decades.

He shared a £3million home in Worsley, Greater Manchester, with Stacey - where she and their children have continued to live.

Giggs retired as a player in 2014 after a record 963 appearances for United over 24 seasons. He won 64 international caps for Wales.
