Lots of Wolves fans have had their say on Twitter after Shrewsbury manager Sam Ricketts expressed his frustrations over the movement of Ryan Giles.
The left-sided midfielder had been on loan in League One for Ricketts’ side for pretty much the first half of the season until he was recalled due to a Ruben Vinagre injury.
Despite the recall, the 20-year-old did not find himself playing any first-team football but did make two appearances on the bench for Nuno Espirito Santo.
Now, to the annoyance of Sam Ricketts, Giles is back in League One once more, though this time he is chasing promotion with Coventry City.
Should Ryan Giles have gone back to Shrewsbury?
Yes, it's rude from the club
No, get him playing at a higher level
As you can read from the tweet below by @TalkingWolves, the coach was frustrated by this considering the work they had done with him earlier in the season – and now he is helping out a league rival.
There was a pretty mixed response from fans, with many saying it’s simply tough and how football works, while others agree that the manager has been stitched up a little bit.
Here are some of the replies below…
Can't blame him for being a bit peeved

Unfortunate for Shrewsbury but Giles is a Wolves player at the end of the day. We needed the cover.

I’d be annoyed aswell but wolves comes first and with Vinagre injury we needed cover

I’d be ticked off if I was Giles too. Missed two games against Liverpool to sit on our bench for one match.

Absolutely – poor show. Especially stitching up a former

Yeah that was a bit selfish from us

Considering that the progression of Giles seemed to be going pretty well for both parties, this deal clearly feels like a kick in the teeth for Shrewsbury, who seem to be pretty annoyed that their local big team couldn’t give them another helping hand.
Nevertheless, there’s no doubt that the pressure will be ramped up for Giles who is now going to be playing in a promotion battle to the Championship.
On the whole, that could end up being more beneficial than just giving him back to a former player, but time will tell as to whether it was the right call.
