Bookies Pay Out On Rooney

Wayne Rooney’s overhead bicycle kick has been judged the goal of the season according to Ladbrokes, some punters getting 7/4.

The bookies have decided to rewards punters who were quick to take the 7/4 on offer immediately after the match against Manchester City in what’s proven to be a costly move for the firm.

Today also saw an exceptionally lively day of trading in both ‘next manager’ markets. Dave Jones is now the even money favourite for the West Ham job with early morning favourite Alex McLeish now out to 7/1 following confirmation he will spend another season at Birmingham City.

Both Hiddink (9/4 favourite) and van Basten (5/2) have hardened at the top of the Chelsea market with Harry Redknapp also popular at 5/1.

Alex Donohue of Ladbrokes said: “Despite no official announcement being made we’ve decided to pay out on Rooney’s sensational goal. Punters were quick to take our special in the aftermath of the game and it went odds-on the same day.”

he added: “It’s been a typical roller-coaster 24 hours in both managerial markets. Jones is now the red-hot favourite for the West Ham job following good early support for McLeish.”
