Strictly's Rhys Stephenson apologises for tears as he addresses host Claudia's 'low' move

  Strictly's Rhys Stephenson apologises for tears as he addresses host Claudia's 'low' move RHYS STEPHENSON has taken to Instagram to apologise after breaking down in front of the crowd after performing a waltz on Strictly Come Dancing 2021 last night. The presenter got upset twice, one of the times being after Claudia Winkleman's "low" move.

Swansea City boss Russell Martin has told Liverpool loanee Rhys Williams he must be ready to grab his opportunity when his chance presents itself.

Williams has found the going tough since his summer switch from Anfield, where he played 19 times under Jurgen Klopp last term.

In the hope of getting regular game-time under his belt, Williams headed to south Wales for the season but due to injury and the form of others he has had to bide his time.

Ben Cabango found himself in a similar situation in recent weeks but has started the last two games for Swansea, and Martin has urged the Reds youngster to follow the Welshman's example and be ready to take his shot when it comes round, adding he feels whatever happens, Williams will be a better player for his experience in Landore.

“Rhys came straight in for us and started, then got an injury and then had a really difficult afternoon at Luton followed by a difficult week after suffering racist abuse, which is a disgrace," Martin said after the positive 2-0 win over Barnsley on Wednesday night.

“Since then he’s found it really tough to get in. The guys have been in such good form. That’s football, that’s life.

“But Rhys understands where we’re at. He’s a brilliant boy and I think whatever happens he’ll go back to Liverpool a better player for his experience.

“He’s developed more resilience. And he’s really happy here by the way.

“Yes, he wants to play more football, but him and his girlfriend both enjoy the area. I think he’s enjoying the club and what we’re trying to do.

“At this moment in time he has to wait for his opportunity, but that’s football sometimes.

“It’s never anything personal. Football is about competition, working hard for your place and then when you get it, especially in this team, you have to really take it.

“Ben Cabango has done that tonight. He’s been incredible the last two games and is improving so much so quickly.

“I’m sure when Rhys gets his opportunity, he has to be ready to take it. And with the way he trains and approaches, I feel he will be ready.”

Defensive solidity is something Martin prides himself on, and another clean sheet at Oakwell certainly pleased the head coach. Swansea's record only emphasises the challenge laid at Williams' door.

“I think we’re only second in the league behind Bournemouth on that stat," Martin said when asked about their latest shut-out.

“And that’s really important for us because we’re trying to do something with the ball, but without forgoing the importance of the solidity.

“We’re now becoming a difficult team to play against. Blackpool had three shots on Saturday, two from a corner.

“Tonight I think the only shot of note was a free-kick that went over the bar.

“I feel like we’ve come a long way in three months, but I still think that we can get better and better as we go on.”
