Liverpool Echo is reporting that the club is furious with bookmakers for taking bets on the next player to have his house burgled. Paddy Power had started taking bets as to which star would be next, with Jamie Carragher, Steven Gerrard and Fernando Torres all 12/1 favorites. However, the bookies have now shelved their plan after a furious protest from the club.
Paddy Power is also an advertising partner of the club and as of this morning the banners to Paddy Power are still there.
I am happy that Paddy Power changed their minds, stuff like this should be outlawed.
