The England international striker graduated from the Everton youth academy, before joining United in 2004, and was happy to be back in blue for a good cause against Spanish club Villarreal on Sunday.

Rooney said: “I was delighted with the fans’ reaction.

“I didn’t know what to expect but it was great for me and for my kids, to see me once in an Everton shirt. It brought back some good old memories.”

Everton eventually lost the game 2-1 at Goodison Park as they get set for their 2015/16 season opener against Watford next weekend.
