Punters Keane To Back Roy For Forest


William Hill have suspended their market for who will be the next Nottingham Forest manager after taking a bet of £5000 on Roy Keane at odds of 2/1, shortening him to Even money but continuing to be asked for hefty wagers at that price.

“There have been a number of well backed contenders to succeed Steve McClaren such as Karl Robinson, Billy Davies and Alan Shearer but 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”, said Hill’s spokesman Graham Sharpe.
