Wayne Rooney's father arrested in police betting probe

Wayne Rooney's father has been arrested and bailed as part of an investigation into suspicious betting activity during a Scottish Premier League match.

Mr Rooney, 48, was one of nine men questioned.

The allegations centre on the sending-off of the Motherwell footballer Steve Jennings during a match against Hearts last December.
