Ryan Reynolds and Rob McElhenney led side Wrexham is truly an inspiring story. The Red Dragons went through a rollercoaster of emotions as they battled to secure promotion. While the ending was no less than a fairy tale, the journey was surely a ride to Damascus experience. While they faced a series of struggles in their run, the biggest hindrance in their fight for promotion was Notts County. The Magpies gave Wrexham a run for their money as they nearly seized promotion from right under the Hollywood duo’s nose.

As Wrexham managed to gain an edge over their rivals, Ryan Reynolds had a peculiar message for a particular rival striker.

Welcome To Wrexham recently returned to our screens with an exciting sequel as it took the fans through the club’s incredible 2022-23 run. The latest episode revolved around Wrexham’s biggest rival Notts County. Previously, the Magpies ran Wrexham down to the wire during their record-breaking title run in the 2022-23 season. And one of the biggest contributors to the same was Macaulay Langstaff. The star striker netted nearly 50 goals for the club in the season. However, in the latest episode of Welcome To Wrexham, McElhenney bemoaned Langstaff’s efforts hilariously as he spoke, “Macaulay Langstaff, he can f*ck off.

Meanwhile, Reynolds did not shy away from giving his take on the star striker either. The Deadpool actor praised Langstaff as he spoke, “Yeah, god that guy is good. He further praised the striker’s good looks calling him “handsome as f**k.Interestingly, Reynolds even posed the possibility of starring Langstaff in the BBC crime series, Peaky Blinders.
