Rebekah Vardy made a thinly-veiled dig at Coleen Rooney with a joke about chasing off ‘pesky pigeons’ on her Instagram Story on Friday.

The wife of footballer Jamie Vardy, 40, quipped that her sleeping dog should be chasing of the pest-like birds – after once saying that quarrelling with Coleen was like ‘arguing with a pigeon’.  

It comes after WAG Coleen, 36, won their Wagatha Christie libel battle victory last week – leaving Rebekah with a multi-million pound sum to pay her.

Sharing a picture of her dog, Rebekah wrote: ‘Thought you were meant to be chasing those pesky pigeons off Ralphy, why are pugs so lazy.’

Rebekah made the remark about pigeons about Coleen after she accused her of leaking stories to the press back in 2019.

She said at the time: ‘It would be like arguing with a pigeon. You can tell it that you are right and it is wrong, but it’s still going to s*** in your hair.’

The remark resurfaced during their recent bitter High Court trial.

Coleen and Rebekah are set for one last dramatic High Court showdown over who will foot the multi-million-pound bill for their costly ‘Wagatha Christie’ libel battle. 

Sources close to Coleen – who won the case last week – told The Mail on Sunday she will fight to make sure Rebekah pays the full amount, estimated to be up to £3million. 

Usually a winning party will still have to pay about 30 per cent of the costs. 

But Coleen’s team claim the judge’s damning judgment that Becky did sell stories about her to The Sun newspaper means it is ‘inconceivable’ that she won’t be made to pay the full amount.

Mrs Justice Steyn ruled on Friday that Becky and her agent Caroline Watt had leaked stories about Coleen, wife of ex-England skipper Wayne. 

Rebekah sued her former friend for libel over a now-famous social media post in which Coleen described setting up a ‘sting operation’ by posting fake stories to selected followers on her private Instagram account to uncover who was leaking stories about her to The Sun. 

The ‘big reveal’ post in October 2019 ended: ‘It’s… Rebekah Vardy’s account.’ 

After Rebekah brought legal action, Coleen offered her a ‘drop hands’ offer, which meant they would both walk away, paying their own costs. She also suggested they make a charity donation. 

Fair: Sources close to Coleen – who won the case last week – told The Mail on Sunday she will fight to make sure Rebekah pays the full amount, estimated to be up to £3million.

But Rebekah declined, leading to a costly High Court trial. Now, after her victory, Coleen wants her rival to pay up.

A source close to Coleen said: ‘Coleen didn’t want this to happen. She knew the money would be better spent on so many other things but she won’t be letting Rebekah get away with not paying the full costs. 

‘She tried to settle this early on but Rebekah wouldn’t have it. And if you look at the outlining of the judgment, it is inconceivable that a judge wouldn’t agree she will pay them in full. Let’s not forget, this action was brought by Rebekah and she lost spectacularly.’ 

During a preliminary hearing in March last year, the costs were estimated at £1.3million. 

Now, after the case’s two-week High Court hearing, reports have claimed the total could be £3million. 

Rebekah’s barrister, Hugh Tomlinson QC, reportedly charges £10,000 a day, while his opposite number, David Sherborne, charges about £8,000. 

There is speculation that Rebekah and her husband, Leicester City striker Jamie, may have to sell their Portuguese villa to pay the legal bill.
