Ingenious Manchester United fan settles bet with Liverpool pal in glorious fashion
Two friends and fans of rival football teams bet each other a tenner that their respective clubs would finish higher than the other at the end of the season. This is the ingenious way that the bet was paid...
We all now know that Liverpool finished higher than Manchester United in the final league table . After making a bet that his beloved United would actually finish ahead of their Scouse rivals, however, Red Devils fan Diarmaid McPhillips was forced to pay up the tenner that he owed.
He wasn't going to go down without getting a dig of his own in, however, and he was happy to settle the wager in this brilliantly creative fasion, with each 50p coin representing each of the twenty league titles that United have won.

In a season of mediocrity for Manchester United, this is the sort of creative flair that has been all too lacking at Old Trafford this season.
