No More Bets Please

No More Bets Please

Bookmakers William Hill say they have suspended betting on the new manager post at Nottingham Forest, following heavy betting on former player Roy Keane.

William Hill's spokesman Graham Sharpe said. 'There have been a number of well backed contenders to succeed Steve McClaren such as Karl Robinson, Billy Davies and Alan Shearer. However, after seeing a string of bets of up to £5000 for Roy Keane with little support for anybody else we have decided to suspend the market in case an appointment is imminent.'

Keane would be a strange appointment for the Reds' at this particular moment in time, simply due to the fact that he's a high profile name and he has a history of demanding, receiving and spending cash everywhere he's worked in management. The general feeling around the City Ground at present, is there will be no money for funding new players under the current regime. With that in mind, it's a little surprising to see Keane being so heavily backed in the market.

Forest CEO Mark Arthur spoke yesterday and said an appointment was expected to be announced by the middle of next week.
