Manchester United's Wayne Rooney is available at 20/1 to be sent off against Liverpool at Anfield on Saturday in a new special market unveiled by bwin.com.

The striker, who is priced at 1/100 to stay on the pitch when the two sides meet in the lunchtime kick-off, made headlines last week after receiving a red card in England's crucial final Euro 2012 qualifier against Montenegro.

Although England still secured the draw they needed to qualify, the incident served as a reminder of Rooney's sometimes explosive rage.

And with the game against Liverpool guaranteed to be a volatile affair both on a club and personal level for Rooney, his temperament is likely to be put to the test once again.

With Liverpool and Manchester United two of the game's biggest rivals and Rooney a former Everton player, punters could see value in odds of 20/1 for the 25-year-old to be ordered from the pitch for the second time in two matches.

Taking this further, it is also now possible to bet on the number of red cards Rooney will receive playing for Manchester United in the 2011/12 season.

With only red cards in Premier League, Champions League, Europa League, Carling Cup and FA Cup counting, Rooney is 6/5 to steer clear of red cards for the rest of the campaign, 31/20 to receive a single red and 5/2 to see two or more.

That said, the Premier League's top goalscorer could react positively to his England indiscretion and put in a match-winning performance against Liverpool.

With nine league goals to his name already this season, Rooney is 7/5 to score at Anfield, 5/1 to score first, 15/2 to score two or more and 40/1 to score three or more.

Rooney is also priced at 14/1 to overcome the ban he receives for the red card against Montenegro and emerge from Euro 2012 as the tournament's top scorer.

Looking ahead to the Liverpool - Man United game itself, the away side are 13/10 favourites to take home all three points in bwin's 3Way football betting market, with a draw priced at 23/10 and a home win at 2/1.
