RESULT!: DON'T KNOCK DOWN GINGER; IN ASSOCIATION WITH betfair.com.

Byline: DEREK McGOVERN

PAUL SCHOLES, the only ginger bloke under five foot who's not Scottish, is just one booking away from missing a second Champions League final.

The Manchester United midfielder, who missed the 1999 fluke through suspension, is 5-2 to pick up a yellow in Milan next Wednesday and, with that hair, considerably longer to pick up a blonde.

I feel sorry for redheads. Blondes have been laughed at for too long - but redheads are just blondes with high blood pressure.

I overheard a blonde and redhead talking in a pub while watching a man on the six o'clock news threatening to jump from a bridge.

The blonde bet the redhead pounds 10 that he wouldn't jump and the redhead accepted. The bloke jumped and blondie paid up.

"I can't take this money," the redhead said. "I saw this on Sky News an hour ago."

"So did I," said the blonde. "But I didn't think he'd jump again."

Bookies Paddy Power, in honour of Alan Ball, are betting on the first ginger to score this weekend. Take the evens that none does - gingers never score.

They bet: 4-1 S Sidwell, 9-2 P Scholes, 7-1 JA Riise, 11-1 N Butt, 14-1 D Collins, 16-1 W Brown, Evens none.
