Wrexham owner Ryan Reynolds stuns pubgoers as he rocks up to join local singalong… before taking £100k jet back to US
RYAN REYNOLDS went from Deadpool to the Wrex Factor as he stunned football fans by joining a pub singalong – before taking a £100,000 private flight back to the USA.
The Wrexham owner dashed from the Racecourse Ground to The Turf pub down the road as he shared Saturday’s momentous victory over Notts County with Welsh supporters.
The Hollywood star then jetted back from Manchester airport to Teterboro in New Jersey – and was snapped on SUNDAY walking around New York with wife Blake Lively.
The Canadian actor, 45, and club co-owner Rob McElheney, both 45, were jubilant after big-spending Wrexham went three points clear in the National League.
The movie world duo went on stage with the Declan Swans as a packed pub sang the local band’s hit “It’s Always Sunny in Wrexham” – their tribute to “Deadpool and Rob McElhenney.”
American actor McElhenney is best known for comedy series “It’s Always Sunny in Philadelphia”.
The pair say they have fallen in love with football in general, and Wrexham in particular, after buying the fifth-tier club in November 2020.
Reynolds has now bought a £1.5million home in Marford, about five miles from the North Wales city.
And he was pictured excitedly bantering in the tunnel with hero keeper Ben Foster following a top-of-the-table twist as thrilling as any Hollywood script.
The ex-England star, 40, who only joined last month, saved a 97th-minute penalty to stop County drawing and going level on points with Wrexham.
Foster revealed afterwards he was “kissed on the lips” by McElhenney as the Red Dragons close on a return to the Football League after 15 years..
And Reynolds told him after his spot-kick block: “Oh my God! You son of a b***! What was that about? You’re too old for that!”
The actor then labelled the finale the “most dramatic thing I’ve ever seen in my life!”
Reynolds later said: “I don’t feel like I have a heart anymore. I feel like I used all the beats that I had left during that match.
‘That was unlike anything I’ve ever seen before and indicative of course of all you lifers who have watched and participated in this game, this beautiful, tortuous game forever.”
