Ex-Man United boss Casey Stoney hits out at online abuse over Wrexham links

Former Manchester United women's coach Casey Stoney has said individuals targeting her for abuse online after she was linked with taking charge of non-league side Wrexham should be "ashamed."

Stoney, who was in charge at United for three years, left the club last month and is reportedly a target for Wrexham, who are owned by actors Ryan Reynolds and Rob McElhenney.

"For the lovely people on here that are abusing me for even being linked with a job in the men's game please do yourself a favour & lower your blood pressure," Stoney wrote on Twitter.

"I am happily spending time with my family thank you if you have a daughter, sister, wife or mother you should be ashamed."

Stoney oversaw United's promotion to the Women's Super League in her first season in charge before successive fourth-place finishes.

After taking over in November last year, Reynolds described Wrexham -- the third-oldest professional football club in the world -- as a "sleeping giant" and said: "The sky is the limit, we want Wrexham to be a global force."
