RYAN GIGGS has reportedly been left fuming after being snubbed in the Premier League Hall of Fame.
Thierry Henry and Alan Shearer are the first inductees – with Giggs being replaced by former Arsenal star Henry at the last minute.

The Mirror reports that ‘Giggs has been left shocked’ by the snub and was ‘dropped at the last minute after being charged with assaulting two women’.
The charges follow an alleged bust-up with ex-girlfriend Kate Greville at his mansion.
SunSport has since exclusively revealed that the 47-year-old former Manchester United ace could face up to FIVE YEARS in prison.
Football idol Giggs was alleged to have ‘controlled’ his ex-girlfriend for three years.
He was charged with coercive and controlling behaviour against PR executive Greville.
Giggs was further charged with assault occasioning actual bodily harm to Kate, 36.
He is also accused of common assault of another woman in her 20s.
Giggs won 13 league titles with United, is the club’s record appearance maker and is the most decorated player to have ever played in England.

He got his hands on 34 trophies during some real glory years at Old Trafford including two Champions Leagues, four FA Cup wins and a Uefa Super Cup.
But his place alongside Newcastle and England legend Shearer was given to Henry.
The French striker scored 175 Premier League goals in 258 games and was the focal point of Arsenal’s ‘Invincibles’ season.
Shearer remains the Premier League’s top scorer of all time with 260 goals.
