Wayne Rooney has opened up on how he was "gutted" with himself after kissing the Manchester United badge in front of Everton’s supporters.

“Yeah it was just a pure reaction to the Everton fans,” Rooney told Gary Neville on Soccer Box on Sky Sports.

Rooney, who grew up a boyhood Blue and was a product of the club’s youth system, departed Goodison Park in the summer of 2004 to join United for an initial  £27million.

And following Rooney’s goal to put the Reds 3-2 up, with just over 10 minutes remaining, the forward headed towards the away fans but stopped in front of the Park End to kiss the United badge.

“Chelsea had played Bolton away and  drew 2-2, so this had almost won us the league.”

The move brought widespread anger from Blues fans and was the start of a long-running feud, but the whole incident was something Rooney instantly regretted.

Despite taking a 2-0 lead thanks to goals from Alan Stubbs and Manuel Fernandes, United hit-back in the final half-an-hour to claim a 4-2 victory.
