Wrexham co-owner Rob McElhenney is still trying to lure Gareth Bale out of retirement

Wrexham co-owner Rob McElhenney is still trying to lure Gareth Bale out of retirement

Wrexham co-owner Rob McElhenney has issued a fresh plea for Gareth Bale to come out of retirement.

The Hollywood star has previously tried to tempt the former Real Madrid player out of retirement on social media and explained that "the offer is still on the table" for the Welsh great to join the League One side.

McElhenney told The Athletic: "Gareth Bale is still technically available! I don't know, I made the plea last year and I'm just going to tell Gareth that the offer's still on the table.

"We'll let you off for golf, whenever you need to get off. As long as you come to training once or twice a week we can figure out how to get you 10 minutes on the pitch.

"And the golf courses - Wales is amongst the most beautiful countries in the world."

McElhenney and fellow Hollywood luminary Ryan Reynolds have overseen back-to-back promotions as Wrexham have climbed from the National League to League One and he hasn't ruled out the prospect of a historic hat-trick.

The 'It's Always Sunny in Philadelphia' star told S4C: "Not that it wasn’t real before, but now it gets really real. League One is a very competitive division. There are so many great clubs that have come down from the Championship into League One, and it’s going to be a lot tougher than it was last year.

"But I was just with Phil [Parkinson] and then just with the boys in [Las] Vegas, and they seem to think we have a shot at being there at the top again."
