It was revealed this week that ex-Manchester United 'keeper Mark Bosnich recommended Sir Alex Ferguson for the Australia job.

Of the thousands who wrote that move off without a second thought, English bookmaker Ladbrokes were evidently up there with the highest ranked pessimists.

In the wake of bizarre speculation linking the recently retired United legend to the Australia hot seat, the betting company have released a series of funny odds, according to the Daily Star.

We're sure you'll agree that they are probably intended as jibes rather than to be taken seriously, but nonetheless you can place money on them.

Amongst the ridiculous punts involving the legendary gaffer is Sir Alex Ferguson being put at 500/1 to enter this year's edition of reality t.v show 'I'm a Celebrity Get Me Out Of Here'.

He also appears at 100/1 to be seen riding a kangaroo before the end of 2013, 100/1 to open an Australian themed restaurant in the UK and 500/1 to become a citizen of Australia.

For those of you who aren't that frugal though there are some other bets to be had with more reasonable odds.

Fergie comes in at 2/1 to be seen drinking a pint of Fosters in the UK, 8/1 to bee caught eating a kangaroo burger in the UK and 10/1 for 'Australia' to appear in the name of any of his horses.
