Images of the 35-year-old former England international with a few ladies in a private party emerged online.
What Rooney's close pal said
SunSport quoting The Mirror reported that the girls didn't realise Rooney was a football star as they called him Clooney all through their charade. The pal told the Mirror:
"It was hilarious but everyone was in high spirits and enjoying themselves. They can be a feisty bunch and were just having fun. They were just having a laugh. Nobody meant any harm.”
Sources reveal that the Derby County manager went to Chinawhite with two male friends after his side's pre-season defeat to League Two side Salford City Saturday, July 24.
They were flexing in the VIP section when they were joined by Tayler, Elise, and a group of their friends who all come from Barrow-in-Furness, Cumbria.
The publication added that Rooney was on his way back to StayCity with his hoodie on his head while Tayler and another girl were walking behind him.
Meanwhile, he was spotted sleeping when he was still in the apartment after apparently barring the girls but when they gained access to the room, one flashed her bottom in a snap beside the ex-football star.
