Unreliable octopus tips United

Iker the 'psychic' octopus has predicted that Man United will be celebrating a fourth European crown in Wembley tonight.

The tenticaled tipster came to the dramatic conclusion during a prediction ceremony at the Sea Life Aquarium in the southern Spanish resort of Benalmadena.

But Alex Ferguson won't be popping champagne corks just yet. Iker -- named after the Spanish No 1 Casillas -- has struggled to live up to the reputation of the original oracle Paul the Octopus.

Iker last month wrongly forecast the Spanish club's arch-rival Real Madrid would make the Wembley final.
