Wayne Rooney's father will face no further action over allegations of a football match betting scam, his solicitor has said.

Wayne Rooney Snr was arrested when police swooped at his home in West Derby, Liverpool, last October. Eight other people, including Liverpool-born Motherwell midfielder Steve Jennings, 26, were also arrested on suspicion of conspiracy to defraud.

Merseyside Police said at the time the arrests were the culmination of a joint operation with the Gambling Commission into "suspicious betting activity".
