Wayne Rooney netted a brace against Scotland as England cruised to a 3-1 victory at Celtic Park.
Rooney celebrated his 101st cap in some style tonight. The forward managed to score two quality goals, and also scored on his 100th cap on Saturday. This form from Rooney has seen the fans hail the forward. As he approaches the all time England goal record, fans have started to debate whether or not Rooney is worthy of such a stat.
Whilst many argue he hasn’t reached the heights that many have hoped, he’s still managed a lot of brilliant achievements in his career. With nearly 50 goals for England, it’s hard to criticise the forward.
Manchester United fans will hope he can continue this form into the big game against Arsenal on Saturday. Here’s how fans reacted on Twitter to Rooney’s brace.

Rooney doesn't get the credit he deserves sometime. Simply class

Very good from England, very good from Wayne Rooney. I can’t tell you how weird it feels to type that.

Rooney is on the verge of becoming England's top goal scorer. Overrated they say.

I'm one of Rooney's biggest England critics but he was class tonight.
