PUNTERS who backed Leigh Griffiths to score first for Hibs against Hearts will be paid out – even though the game finished 0-0.
There was controversy when Griffiths' late free-kick crashed off the underside bar and at least a yard over the line before being cleared.
Neither the ref or linesman saw the “goal” and the game ended 0-0. I tipped Griffiths to score first and Hibs to win to nil.
Thousands of you took my advice and many will now be paid out thanks to the power of mrfixitstips. Ladbrokes chose to pay out within five minutes of me calling them and McBookie had already agreed to do so.
However, anyone backing a Hibs win will miss out because bookies have to pay on the draw which was also a popular choice.
They point out their “Bore Draw” concession kicked in on the game while some customers who complained have received their stake back as a free bet.
