ROONEY SAW THE OZ MAGIC; RESULT!

Byline: with sports betting's top tipster DEREK McGOVERN E-MAIL ME AT: betsguru@aol.com, ADDITIONAL REPORTING BY JOHN SHAW

THE most shocking revelation in Fergie's book does not concern Roy Keane, Arsene Wenger, Ruud van Nistelrooy or any of the other 200 people he fell out with during his dictatorship.

Nobody was under the impression Keano, whose own book is titled 'What Are You Looking At?', was anything other than an argument waiting to happen.

Even on ITV his mere presence reduces Adrian Chiles to a gibbering, nervous wreck, although that could just be his presenting style. No, the key revelation in the much-talkedabout tome was that Wayne Rooney challenged Fergie as to why he didn't bid for Mesut Ozil in 2010.

At that time Ozil (below) joined Real Madrid for a fee believed to have been in the region of PS13million.

This news makes Rooney look exceptionally bright and not the kind of guy who spends PS30,000 on a hair transplant and still suffers from split hairs. His hair split a while back.

Given Rooney is a good judge of a player it stands to reason he may become a manager one day. William Hill offer 10-1 Rooney manages a Premier League club by the times he's 40.

He's 1-10 to be as bald as a coot by then, whatever that is.
