Arrested ... Wayne Rooney Snr
WAYNE Rooney's father was arrested today in connection with an alleged football betting scam.
The Manchester United star's dad Wayne Snr, 48,
was arrested at his home in the West Derby area of Liverpool.
Wayne Snr and England striker Rooney's Uncle Richie, 54,
are said to be two of nine people arrested over the alleged scandal.
The arrests took place in Liverpool and Glasgow
this morning in relation to a game between Scottish sides
Motherwell and Hearts in December last year.
Motherwell midfielder Steve Jennings was also arrested
after allegedly getting himself sent off deliberately during the match.
He was sent off for dissent toward the end of the game at Motherwell's ground Fir Park, which Hearts won 2-1.
A statement issued by the Scottish Football Association and attributed to the Gambling Commission said the arrest followed 'extensive irregularities' between the two teams.
Chief executive Stewart Regan said: "While the investigation involves several other individuals outwith Scotland, it is important to stress that the evidence gathered throughout this thorough period of investigation has involved only one Scottish match.
"Motherwell FC are aware of the situation and will issue a response in due course.
"The Scottish FA will make no further comment at this stage."
A statement from Merseyside Police said: "Detectives have today executed warrants at ten addresses across Merseyside and Glasgow and arrested nine men as part of an investigation into suspicious betting activity.

Anzhi Makhachkala striker Samuel Eto'o admits his move to Russia was influenced by the money, but insists that anyone would have made the same decision.
The Cameroon international became the world's highest-paid footballer in August, penning a three-year deal worth 10 million euros per year, and the lucrative nature of the contract is something Eto'o is not ashamed of.
"I have received an important offer and accepted it. We all work for the money, and anyone who says otherwise is a hypocrite," the 30-year-old told AS.
Eto'o was then quizzed on who he felt was the best coach he has ever played under, and he plumped for his two-time mentor during the 2000-01 and 2003-04 campaigns at Mallorca.
"For me the best coach of all time is Luis Aragones, while Jose Mourinho is the best at the moment. I learned a lot from Aragones, both as a player and as a person," he concluded.
Roberto Carlos' tenure as Anzhi coach started in disappointing fashion, as Eto'o was unable to prevent his side from going down 1-0 at home to Lokomotiv Moscow on October 2.
