Bellamy swings for punters

Craig Bellamy, every Liverpool fan's favourite Welshman, scored the equalising goal against Barcelona last night and celebrated the event by imitating a golf swing.

Given Bellamy's widely reported antics leading up to the game, you might have seen that type of celebration coming. William Hill certainly didn't. The bookmaker initially offered 100/1 about Bellamy scoring and celebrating with a golfing type shot. Punters latched on to this novelty bet as by kick off time Hill's had been forced to cut the price to 33/1. Apparently this morning the layers are checking out the damage.
