Wayne Rooney has taken to social media to reveal his delight after moving up to second place in the all-time Premier League goal-scoring chart this weekend.

The Manchester United captain netted his side’s third goal as Louis van Gaal’s men ran out 3-0 winners over Everton at Goodison Park in the Premier League on Saturday.

The striker moved Rooney behind Alan Shearer as the second-most prolific scorer in Premier League history with 187 goals to his name.

Rooney uploaded the photo above onto the app and wrote: “Delighted to be second in the all time Premier League goal scoring chart, the league that i’ve watched and loved since I was a boy. Next up is CSKA Moscow in the Champions League….”
