However some sections of the population were still eager to condemn him following the recent accusations about his private life.
Rooney’s loud mouth and fame hungry cousin Natalie has taken the opportunity to stick the knife in on Wazza via her twitter account.
Here are a selection of her finest tweets:
‘My heart goes out to poor Coleen. At least it weren’t a granny this time though. X’
‘And you were ashamed by my flashing. I’m appalled. You’re an utter disgrace to the family. Poor colly. I really do feel for her. Xx.’
‘Just bag him & bin him. You deserve a million times better. Not someone who does this to you and treats you like dirt while he’s out sleeping with dirt.
‘The nasty tweets I’m getting aren’t bothering me. I’ve noticed they are all from men. Men who will be doing to their wife or girlfriend what that dirty b*****d has done to his.’
“Wonder if capello can learn his players to start thinking with their brains instead of their d*cks!!”
She clearly doesn’t have a lot of sympathy for her cousin.
I read an article about her that said ‘she rose to fame for glamour modelling’, but something tells me she wouldn’t have achieved her Z-list celebrity status if it wasn’t for her brothers footballing talents.
These condescending comments lose some of their value coming from a girl whose career ambitions include wanting to get ‘the biggest boobs in Liverpool’ and to appear in Nuts magazine.
Also you know things are getting bad when Natalie Rooney is being turned to by some as a moral arbitrator for society!
