Wayne Rooney

A look at the best reactions to Wayne Rooney's celebration for Manchester United.

 

Wayne Rooney's celebration after scoring for Manchester United might just have been the best in recent Premier League history.

The striker was responding to a video posted online by The Sun of him boxing in his kitchen with Sunderland defender and ex-United colleague Phil Bardsley, and appearing to be floored by a jab.

After netting United's third against Spurs, Rooney responded with a boxing celebration of his own, mimicking his collapse to the floor after his own flurry of punches.

It was the perfect way to respond to the morning's newspaper reports, drew a line under the off-field incident, and showed himself to have a great self-deprecating sense of humour.

The celebration sparked dozens of internet virals, with our HITC Top Corner page creating an eye-catching image of PSG star Zlatan Ibrahimovic kicking him in the face.

Here is the best of the rest...

RKO!

 

Thierry Henry lends a hand

 

Jack Wilshere hits back
