This story was published more than 11 years ago.

Irish gambling firm Paddy Power is red faced after it retweeted a Twitter user's offensive post during an FA Cup game between Machester City and Manchester United.

The controversial tweet was made by a user who was wanting to take bets on whether or not a player would have a heart attack during the prime match up. Last month during a match between the Bolton Wanderers and Tottenham Hotspur Bolton player Fabrice Muamba had a heart attack on the field.

Twitter followers described the retweet by Paddy Power as being "absolutely disgraceful" and "appalling".
