Former Manchester United footballer Ryan Giggs is to face a retrial over allegations he assaulted his ex-girlfriend, a judge has ruled.

The judge set a new trial date of 31 July next year at a short hearing on Wednesday at Manchester Crown Court.

Jurors had failed to reach verdicts following more than 20 hours of deliberations in his four-week trial.

So they'll both have to be in limbo until next July? 


It must have cost thousands already,  is it acceptable that they have to wait so long and can't get on with their lives?

My heart goes out for the hundreds of idiots that were kept waiting for juru service. And maybe dismissed with no thanks. The country's a flaming mess.

Ex-Manchester United star Ryan Giggs has been found not guilty of headbutting his ex-girlfriend and subjecting her to controlling and coercive behaviour. Giggs, 48, was cleared of all charges after Kate Greville withdrew her co-operation from the case ahead of a scheduled re-trial in two weeks' time.

Giggs had faced up to five years in jail if convicted. Jurors failed to agree on their verdicts following a trial held last August.
During a hearing on Tuesday, he was cleared of controlling and coercive behaviour, assault occasioning actual bodily harm and common assault. Giggs was not in court when the decision was announced.[size=78%] [/size]

 Judge Hilary Manley ordered not guilty verdicts to be entered. Prosecutors alleged that Giggs, who won 13 Premier League titles, two Champions Leagues and four FA Cups during a glittering 24 year career, had subjected PR executive Greville to a 'litany of abuse, both physical and psychological'.
