Ryan Reynolds gifts Wrexham co-owner Rob McElhenney ‘memorial’ urinal for his birthday | Ents & Arts News
Hollywood star and the co-owner of Wrexham FC, Ryan Reynolds, has gifted a commemorative urinal to Rob McElhenney at the club’s stadium.
The pair took full control of the National League club from the Wrexham Supporters Trust in February 2021, investing £2m.
Reynolds posted a video on Twitter of himself in the toilet, wishing his co-owner a happy 45th birthday.
He cut a small red ribbon revealing a gold plaque with McElhenney’s face on it and popped a bottle of bubbly.
Alongside his face, the plaque was inscribed with his name and birthdate and has been placed above a urinal in a bathroom block at the Racecourse Ground.
The plaque read: “This urinal is dedicated to Robert McElhenney on his birthday – April 14.
“With love from Wrexham AFC, paid for by Ryan Reynolds.”
In the video, Reynolds delivered a speech, while emotional music played in the background.
He said: “Today we commemorate a man, not just any man, Mr co-chairman Robert Lucinda McElhenney, with this memorial urinal.”
Wrexham AFC was formed at The Turf in 1864 and the Racecourse remains the world’s oldest stadium that continues to stage international games.
McElhenney is the creator and producer of the long-running American TV series It’s Always Sunny In Philadelphia, in which he also stars.
