Several Manchester United players took to Twitter to voice their admiration for Paul Scholes after the Ginger Ninja announced his retirement yesterday, Wayne Rooney was not one of them…

To be fair, Rooney has actually spoken to the MEN at great length about just how much he’s going to miss playing alongside ‘Sat Nav’ Scholes next season and also went on to brand the outbound midfielder as ‘the greatest player of his generation’ on Twitter – but that wouldn’t be nearly as funny, now would it?

Before any seething United fans take umbrage, it’s all just a bit fun.
