Wayne Rooney had good reason to celebrate last night as he joined Jimmy Greaves in the goal-scoring charts as England beat Slovenia 3-1 at Wembley.
But one Scottish punter has his own reason to celebrate – ahead of his country’s ‘friendly’ smash up with the Three Lions on Tuesday night at Celtic Park.
His £10 six-fold on Saturday’s League One and Two games netted him £1,450.10 plus Paddy Power’s 20 per cent acca bonus of £288.02 to leave him £1738.12 richer – six weeks out from Christmas.
The lucky lad was sitting pretty with five of the six results going his way but was sweating on League One side Fleetwood to get him over the line.
With the clock ticking down towards full time up popped Jeff Hughes with an 87th minute winner at Yeovil to leave the Cod Army in raptures and our man shouting louder than Jeff Stelling at the tellybox.
Well done sir! A place in the punting Hall of Fame awaits.
