Enraged at his brother’s betrayal, Rhodri Giggs set out on a revenge mission that pals feared would end in horror for football star Ryan.

Wielding a claw hammer, fuming Rhodri tried to track down the Manchester United legend after finding he allegedly had a fling with his ­girlfriend, it was claimed last night.

A source said the situation could have got “very nasty” after Rhodri flew off the handle when he heard Giggs had cheated on him.

The source added: “When he found out he went ballistic, and went looking for Ryan with a hammer. It was all calmed down eventually but it had the potential to get very nasty indeed.”

Giggs had started dating a girl he met in a Manchester club, before he was with wife Stacey. But when Ryan and the girl split up she got together with Rhodri.

However, the former Wales ­international allegedly carried on seeing her behind his brother’s back.

It was a situation that mirrors the one the brothers find themselves in today amid claims Giggs had an eight-year affair with Rhodri’s wife Natasha, 28.

The source claimed: “The girl had first met Ryan in a club and slept with him a few times before moving on to Rhodri, just like Natasha did. They met up a few times before Rhodri discovered what was going on.”

Giggs, 37, is battling to save his marriage to Stacey after his alleged affair with Natasha. He has taken her and their children to a secret holiday destination.

Natasha is said to have confessed to devastated Rhodri, 34, and a friend last week that she had been romping with her brother-in-law.

She claimed they ­regularly slept together after first meeting at a Manchester club in 2003. Giggs denies the affair.

The Mirror revealed how she only spilled the beans after a third woman claimed to have bedded the Old Trafford favourite – who has presented himself as a loyal family man.

He is also at the centre of ­allegations that he had a fling with Big Brother star Imogen Thomas.

And yesterday, we reported claims that he had tried to seduce ­Natasha’s 49-year-old mum Lorraine Lever, sparking a furious family row.

In 2002, Rhodri was jailed for nine months after attacking a man with a beer bottle in a fight outside the Ampersand nightclub in Manchester.

The assault, following an argument about football, was caught on CCTV cameras and described by a judge as “ugly and violent”.

Rhodri’s best friend Will Mellor told how claims his wife has been cheating on him with his brother have turned his world “upside down”.

The former ­Hollyoaks star yesterday described his pal as an innocent victim and said he was struggling to cope with his wife’s betrayal.

He added: “It’s a horrible time. Imagine having your world tipped upside down in one night, if you can imagine what that’s like.

“It’s a horrendous time for everyone who’s innocent in this. I just hope it blows over sooner rather than later and he can start rebuilding his life. It is a very difficult time for him.”

Will spoke of the scandal when he appeared on ITV’s Daybreak.

He told presenter Kate ­Garraway: “The innocent parties need to start rebuilding what’s left of their lives.”

Giggs’s world began to unravel on April 14 after he obtained an injunction banning the publication of his name and claims he had an affair with Imogen.

He was eventually named on Twitter and threats to sue the social network site backfired when thousands of users bombarded message boards repeating the allegations.

Imogen is still banned from talking about the alleged affair.
