RYAN GIGGS took his pet dog for a walk with girlfriend Zara Charles just a week before he is due to stand trial.
He has been charged with coercive and controlling behaviour against ex Kate Greville, 36, over a three-year period.
It is alleged that he ‘drunkenly headbutted his ex-girlfriend’ on November 1 last year as things hit boiling point.
Giggs insists he is innocent and has vowed to clear his name. He will stand trial on January 4.
The former Manchester United star was seen walking pooch Atlas in Cheshire today, with lingerie model partner Zara by his side.
The Sun exclusively revealed how the 47-year-old has found love with the 33-year-old as he faces up to the prospect of prison.
A source said: “Zara has been supporting Ryan over the last few months.
“She’s a great, upbeat girl. Ryan has been completely open with her about his situation. They seem very strong together.”
Giggs has also been charged with assaulting two women.
One alleged victim is his ex Kate and the other — a woman in her twenties — is believed to be her younger sister.
The former footballer, who has temporarily stepped down as Wales boss, denies all the charges.
The Sun on Sunday revealed that Giggs turned to his ex-wife Stacey, 41, for support as he waited to learn if he would face charges.
Giggs and Stacey, mum of his two children, split in 2016. She is now in a relationship with The Wanted singer Max George, 32.
The Welshman met Kate when she was working on the PR for his Hotel Football business venture. They went public in 2018, eight months after his divorce was finalised.
He could face up to five years in jail if found guilty.
