Reacting to the record, this is what Rooney had to say.
“Yeah a hell of a lot. A great honor. I’m very proud,” Rooney said. “It is difficult at the minute to be over pleased because of the result, two points dropped. But in the grand scheme of things it is a huge honor for me and something I never expected when I joined the club. But I am delighted and really proud.”
