Wayne Rooney who had a successful stint with United and also Captained the team untill he was allowed to leave this summer would square up against his former side in today’s Premier League fixture at the Old Trafford.
And Ryan Giggs has come out to say he expects Rooney to celebrate if he gets a goal at the theatre of dreams today despite playing for United since when he was 16.
The Englishman who is 31-year-old knows all about finding the target at the Theatre of Dreams having spent 13 years with the Red Devils – in which time he became the club’s record goalscorer.
While Rooney will be determined to cut United down to size once the action gets underway, Giggs is confident that a former fan favourite will be given a warm reception by the Old Trafford faithful prior to kick-off.
Giggs said in an interview “If you score a goal, you hear players talk about, you sort of lose yourself and I don’t think we should get away from that.
“Show respect, don’t go over the top, but if you score a goal then celebrate. I think fans recognise that.
“Knowing Wayne, I’m sure he’ll be nervous, but relishing the chance as well and he’ll want to score because that’s his job.
