BOOKIES have caused a storm by deciding to settle on Dundee as Scottish Division One champions.

Dundee-based Taybet insist they won't pay out to anyone who backed Dunfermline, Raith Rovers or Falkirk – even if any of those sides lift the title. And major firms are set to follow their lead as the move will save them tens of thousands of pounds.

Taybet are adamant Dundee would have finished top of the pile without a 25-point deduction for going into administration.

The Dens men are on a 23-match unbeaten run and would lead table-toppers Dunfermline by six points if they hadn't been hit with the punishment.

April 1 is the deadline for signing trialists so Dundee could struggle for players over the next few weeks but that hasn't fazed Taybet.

Spokesman April Friel said: “Supporters who bet on Dundee for the title are being unfairly punished. Dundee's record-breaking form proves they are the best side in the division.

“Anyone who bet on Dunfermline, Raith or Falkirk should gratefully accept this situation.”

Major bookies are watching the situation closely. Scots internet firm couldn't be contacted with a message on their phone stating: “We never work on April 1 in case some fool tries to con us.”

We can now come clean and admit this was an April Fool and a better one than Andy Murray tried to pull when he announced Ross Hutchins as his new coach. Thanks for all your comments on the story.
