The solicitor for Wayne Rooney's father has stated he will face no further action over allegations of a football match betting scam. Wayne Rooney Snr was arrested when police swooped at his home in West Derby, Liverpool, last October.
Merseyside Police said at the time the arrests were the culmination of a joint operation with the Gambling Commission into "suspicious betting activity".
Mr Barnfather said:
"Mr Rooney Snr has always vigorously denied the allegations and maintained his innocence throughout the investigation. He is delighted the matter has now concluded."
