    Manager Ryan Giggs will not take charge of Wales for the Nations League match against the Republic of Ireland, while the 46-year-old will also be absent from the dugout for the games against Finland and USA.

    In a statement the Welsh FA say they and Giggs have "mutually agreed that he will not be involved in the upcoming international camp" and added that their immediate priority is "preparing the team" for the three games.

    Earlier today, Giggs denied "all allegations of assault" of his girlfriend Kate Greville.

    It comes after he was arrested following reports of a disturbance at his home on Sunday.

    Robert Page will take charge for the period, supported by Albert Stuivenberg.

    Wales say Page has Giggs' support in taking on the role.

    Ireland face Wales on 15 November in Cardiff.

    The former Manchester United star is co-operating with police, according to a statement released by his representative.

    "Mr Giggs denies all allegations of assault made against him," it read.

    "He is co-operating with the police and will continue to assist them with their ongoing investigations."

    The FAW cancelled a press conference scheduled for Tuesday and will now name their squad for the games on Thursday.

    Giggs was appointed Wales manager in January 2018 after a stellar playing career.

    He won 13 Premier League titles, two Champions Leagues, four FA Cups and three League Cups with the Red Devils, and was capped 64 times for Wales.

    He is also a co-owner of League Two side Salford City.

    Maybe it was his way of paying tribute to Sean Connery?

    Reading between the lines the police confirmed the woman had minor injuries so unless she fell, he looks to be in serious bother.
