Rooney was asked whether he would ever consider the possibility of joining the Bhoys in the latter stages of his career and he was coy with his response.

"We are brought up with a different mentality in Scotland," he told the Daily Record. "We are brought up to believe beating England is as good as it gets.

“We’re going into a game against our arch enemy and that’s the best thing any Scot could experience.”

"This is a huge game for us," he said to the Evening Times. "Hopefully, we can do well against Hearts."
