Wayne Rooney fumes after being substituted during Merseyside derby
Last Updated: 07/04/18 4:05pm
Wayne Rooney seemed fuming with Sam Allardyce's decision to substituted with less than an hour gone in Saturday's Merseyside derby.
Rooney was taken off with just 57 minutes played in the goalless draw at Goodison Park to be replaced by Idrissa Gueye, and seemed angry with the call as he grabbed his coat with force and muttered to himself on the bench.
It was the second time in succession Rooney had been brought off before the hour mark, after lasting 57 minutes in the 3-1 defeat by Man City last week.
Allardyce stood by his decision after the game, saying: "We needed more legs, and as talented as Wayne is and as good as he is on the ball, we needed to get about the pitch a bit more, and he'd done his job.
"That's the way the game goes, nobody is too big to be brought off. It's because it's Everton v Liverpool isn't it? He's bound to be disappointed, there's no doubt."
