England Disgrace

Matt Le Tissier recently escaped criminal charges after he revealed in his autobiography that he hatched a betting scam in the 1990s. The Southampton legend conspired with friends and an unnamed team-mate to cash in on a spread bet on the timing of the first throw-in during a Premier League match. "We kicked off, the ball was tapped to me and I went to hit it out towards Neil Shipperley on the left wing. As it was live on television, I didn't want to make it too obvious, so I tried to hit it just over his head. But, with so much riding on it, I was a bit nervous and didn't give it enough welly. The problem was that Shipps knew nothing about the bet and managed to reach it and even head it back into play." Le Tissier didn't win any money and decided there and then never to do it again.
