Former England captain Wayne Rooney has appeared in court and admitted drink-driving.

He was arrested when police stopped a car in Wilmslow, Cheshire, in the early hours on 1 September.

The 31-year-old was released on bail after being charged with driving while over the legal limit.

He appeared at Stockport Magistrates’ Court, a day after returning to Old Trafford for the first time since rejoining Everton.

United won the match 4-0.

The Liverpool-born player rejoined his boyhood club this summer, 13 years after leaving for Manchester United.

The father-of-three is also England’s record goalscorer.
