The father of Manchester United
and England striker Wayne Rooney has been cleared of involvement
in an alleged betting scam, media reports said on Monday.
"Mr Rooney senior has always vigorously denied the
allegations and maintained his innocence throughout the
investigation," said his solicitor Anthony Barnfather. "He is
delighted the matter has now concluded."
Rooney's father was among nine men arrested in October over
"suspicious betting activity" surrounding the Scottish Premier
League match between Motherwell and Hearts in December 2010.
