ExclusivePROBE DROPPED Published: 21:00, 1 Dec 2022Updated: 21:17, 1 Dec 2022FOOTIE pundit Gary Neville is in the clear after his online comment delayed pal Ryan Giggs’ trial. The former Man United defender, 47, was referred to the Attorney General for possible contempt of court. 1Gary Neville posted on social media just before business partner Ryan Giggs’ domestic abuse trial was due to start in August Neville — who is Giggs’ business partner — posted on social media just before the domestic abuse trial was due to start in August. Judge Hilary Manley was informed of the potentially prejudicial post and proceedings were delayed by almost an hour. Now a spokeswoman for the Attorney General has confirmed no further action will be taken. The post has been removed. Contempt of court carries a fine or up to two years in prison. Neville did not make specific reference to Kate Greville — the ex-girlfriend and accuser of his former Man United teammate. He denied wrongdoing and maintains his remark was about United’s owners, the Glazers. Giggs, 48, was on trial for four weeks accused of coercively controlling Kate, 37, over a three-year period and head-butting her in a drunken row. The jury failed to reach any verdicts and he faces a retrial next July.
