Officially announced his retirement as a player as well at the age of 35.

Lets see how he does Derby certainly don't have the financial backing they did a few years back when they really should have got promoted he'll have to do a lot more work with youngsters and sort out some pretty poor disciplinary issues from off the field over recent seasons.

I'm surprised he's gone into management he never struck me as someone who would be up for being that front facing.

Keeps him out of his wife's firing line I suppose.

To be fair to her he's in the firing line for a bloody good reason most of the time.

She has been very forgiving of his behaviour.

Anyone seen the state they are in?

They've got 9 first team players. 2 of which are goalkeepers. They haven't got the money to pay the wages of anyone coming in. Rooney's injured one of their players in a 50/50 in training and he's out for 12 weeks and they have a suspended 3 point deduction hanging over them for late payment of wages.

Those girls who took those photos trying to get £10k out of him will be in trouble with the police imagine the shoe was on the foot and it was lads flashing their backside at a girl who was passed out drunk in a hotel room.

Derby are a mess their takeover fell through and they've got a transfer ban think they've been given permission to take a few free agents.

Not quite sure why he is partying with 21 year old girls, and as it turns out it’s caused issues. Obviously the girls shouldn’t have taken the pictures but with his rep he’s going to be seriously in the dog house. You just can’t let yourself get into these situations. And now he’s taken out one of his few players! Sure he’s has better weeks!

I think they have quite a few free agents on trial including Ravel Morrison. Must be odds on to go down this season after just surviving last.

Think it's widely known that he likes a night out and when he goes out he goes big probably went back with mates or hangers on and took the girls with them. His mates should really be looking out for him making sure the girls don't get a chance to stitch him up as that is what it looks like in the pictures.

They'd have to be favourites to go down this season they're in a right old mess basically gambled everything on promotion a few years back and didn't make it.

Clubs felt rotten for a while seems like there's a bit of a drinking culture players earning good money and don't really seem to take it seriously can see why Rooney joined them as a player thinking about it.

Won't have helped his reputation going forward probably end up managing Salford in the next 2 seasons.

Imagine the media backlash if 4 male footballers had taken a clearly battered girl back to the hotel and then embarrassed her all over Snapchat.

The double standard is atrocious these girls should be getting slammed by the media.

I'm guessing as he's reported it to the police that the press aren't really able to comment on it as they can't be seen to interfear.

The girls involved are reported to be 21 years old they've made a mistake they've made an apology in one of the papers so my guess is that Rooney will probably drop the complaint no point ruining peoples lives over a stupid mistake. Sounds like the apology came out quickly after reports of potential blackmail against him if that has happened those girls should be getting in trouble with the law.

Well for it to be a fair comparison it's 4 normal lads getting a famous female back to their room and taking some silly photo's on Snapchat.

Rooney's in his mid 30's now he should know better than to get himself in these sort of situations where people could take advantage of him in this way that's my only issue with it. His personal life and what he gets up to is his business between him and his family.
