Wrexham joke Gareth Bale wouldn't get in team anyway after Spurs star snubbed transfer following Hollywood takeover

WREXHAM have poked fun at Gareth Bale after the Wales captain ruled out joining Hollywood stars Ryan Reynolds and Rob McElhenney at the National League side.

Bale, 31, was asked on Tuesday if he would end his career in North Wales following their high-profile takeover but he joked: "It's a bit far for me from Cardiff!"

But Wrexham hit back at Bale's comments and sarcastically tweeted: "Not sure he'd get in ahead of Elliott Durrell at the moment, sorry @GarethBale11", alongside a crying emoji.

Durrell scored the winner for Wrexham in Tuesday night's 1-0 league victory over Hartlepool.

The club tweeted following the match: "Up the Worldwide Reds!" in reference to their recent takeover.

Bale is in action for Wales against Finland in a Nations League decider tonight.

But the Real Madrid forward, on a season-long loan at his old club Spurs, did back Wrexham's new A-list owners to get them back in the Football League.

Bale, born in Cardiff before moving to Southampton, added: "It's good for Wrexham, hopefully they do good things for them and get them back into Football League."

Wrexham have been subject to a shock takeover from Hollywood stars Ryan Reynolds and Rob McElhenney.

The support for the pair's bid was unanimous and 99 per cent of fans backed the move.

Speaking on their decision to back the takeover, The Wrexham Supporters Trust (WST) said: "Subject to final agreement, league and FA confirmation – the RR McReynolds Company, LLC will take 100 per cent control of Wrexham Football Club Limited from the WST.

"Both parties will now proceed with finalising the details of the takeover, and we will update Wrexham supporters as soon as we can.

"As Wrexham supporters, we would like to wish them the very best of luck in charge of our Football Club and look forward to what the future brings.”

The Hollywood heavy-hitters couldn't contain their excitement about the deal and took to Twitter to express their joy.

They said: "To the Wrexham Supporters Trust, thank you for your faith and trust in us.

"We're humbled and we're already getting to work. Oh s***…. this is really happening."
