The solicitor for Wayne Rooney's father has stated he will face no further action over allegations of a football match betting scam.
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."
