Wayne Rooney has taken to Instagram to pay tribute to Manchester United’s travelling fans after Monday night’s 2-1 win at Southampton.

The Red Devils notched up their fifth straight victory in the league thanks to Robin van Persie’s goals either side of half-time at St Mary’s.

Rooney played the full 90 minutes and set up Van Persie’s second strike as Louis van Gaal’s side moved up to third place in the Premier League table.

And the England international is already looking forward to Sunday’s clash with Liverpool at Old Trafford.

“Not our best performance last night but a big 3 points and our fifth straight win,” Rooney wrote along with the photo above.

“Special mention to our away support who were brilliant from start to finish. Next up….Liverpool!”
