'A sad day for football': Everton fans send well-wishes to Wayne Rooney as he retires

Everton fans have been sending their well-wishes to former striker and now Derby manager, Wayne Rooney, after he announced his retirement from football today.

The England and Manchester United record holder made the decision hang up his boots after being given the Rams job on a permanent basis after a short spell in caretaker charge as player-coach.

Rooney, who brokes through at Goodison Park with a memorable goal against Arsenal as a teenager, enjoyed a stellar career. After leaving the Toffees, he went on to become a Man United legend, breaking their goalscoring record in the process.
