For the Manchester United fans in the Transfer Tavern, seeing Wayne Rooney wear a different kit last night was quite a strange sight.
Indeed, the Red Devils’ record goalscorer made his European debut for boyhood club Everton last night as the Toffees took on MFK Ruzomberok at Goodison Park.

In truth, the 31-year-old’s return to Merseyside barely got off to the best of starts, largely struggling in a central striking role, though did improve.
It’s a far cry from his European debut for United back 13 years ago, where he notched a Champions League hat-trick against Fenerbahce and it’s fair to say not every Toffee in the Tavern was overly convinced.
Not many of our resident Red Devils are too surprised about it, following his dip in form for United over the years, so here’s a look at how Man United fans on Twitter reacted.
Weird seeing Rooney in blue. So far though showing the same form he did for United last year #mufc

Feels strange to see Everton fans moaning about Rooney. What did you expect? He ain't the player to score 30 goals a season. #MUFC
