Rooney At United's Xmas Quiz

Recommended Posts







Wayne Rooney might not be getting a Christmas present from Sir Alex Ferguson this year after mocking his gaffer in the club's annual quiz.

United star Rooney was part of the players team that went head-to-head with the coaching staff.

Rooney joined Ryan Giggs and Jonny Evans for the battle of the minds that was filmed at Old Trafford with the trio triumphant against Ferguson's team, winning 40-29.


Can you guess what it is yet? Wayne Rooney points as Sir Alex Ferguson before holding his eye (below). Ferguson (bottom) offered an icy stare but took the joke well


But when he was summoned to the front by presenter Clare Balding for the game of Charades, he ended up sticking the boot into Fergie!

Tasked with giving clues to Giggs and Evans to guess the film title Bend It Like Beckham, Rooney initially struggled.

But when pushed by Balding, he swept back some imaginary golden locks before pointing to Ferguson, pretending to kick a boot and then holding his eye.

Leaving his team-mates slightly baffled, Rooney - struggling to stop laughing - then repeated the combination.

Balding bursts into laughter, Giggs wades in with the answer and Fergie - realising he's the victim of the gag - delivers his famous icy stare with the words: 'That'll cost you!'

The clip is fast becoming a hit on YouTube after originally being aired on the club's in-house television station MUTV over the weekend.

Ferguson, who teamed up with assistant head physio Neil Hough and club doctor Steve McNally, had mocked Rooney in the build-up to the quiz after learning he would be part of the opposition.

He said: 'We've got a club quiz in early December and Ryan Giggs is frantically trying to recruit the two brightest brains in the squad
