Wayne Rooney looks unrecognisable in court sketch with fans in stitches as ex-Man Utd ace supports Coleen in libel case

MANCHESTER UNITED and England legend Wayne Rooney looked unrecognisable as his court sketch left fans in stitches.

The Derby County boss, 36, was at London’s High Court for his wife Coleen’s legal battle with Rebekah Vardy.


The former pals were facing off for the first time since their sensational fallout in October 2019.

That was after Coleen turned detective and claimed stories about her had been leaked from Rebekah’s Instagram account.

The wife of Leicester striker Jamie yesterday repeatedly denied leaking information to newspapers. 

She also branded Coleen, 36, a “school bully” who gloated about the effect her post had on her.

Rebekah told how other Wags turned on her with a “mob mentality” after Coleen’s message went viral on a sensational first day of the Wagatha Christie libel fight.

After the opening day of court, a sketch of ex-Everton, United and Three Lions star Rooney sat alongside Coleen in the courtroom emerged online.

And it had fans in stitches as they quickly began taking the mick on Twitter.

One wrote: "Tyson Fury will be furious.”

Headlines from the trial so far:

  • Rebekah Vardy brands Coleen Rooney a "school bully" who wanted to make her "feel paranoid"
  • The mum-of-five stared down Coleen in the courtroom as she denied leaking any stories about her
  • But it was heard that Harry Maguire's girlfriend was "furious" with Becky amid claims she'd set up paparazzi
  • And bombshell WhatsApp messages were released showing Rebekah called Wayne Rooney a "c***"
  • Peter Andre has also spoken out after he was dragged into the fray

Another said: “That's taken artistic liberty too the extreme.”

A fellow tweeter commented: “Looks like the Lord of the Rings Orc.”

While another simply described the person in the snap in one word: “Potato!”

Rooney is expected to be by Coleen’s side once again for the second day of court.

Mum-of-five Rebekah, who is dressed in all black for today's hearing, covered her eyes with shades as she walked through the press pack into the building.

The Rooneys arrived moments later. Coleen, who wore a black and white patterned outfit, has her foot in a brace after a fall at home.
