Man United star Wayne Rooney manages to spell birthday wrong

It’s not been a good couple of months for Wayne Rooney.

The Manchester United striker has been dropped from the starting XI for both club and country.

With the England forward facing the prospect of being sold in January – he was even told in no uncertain terms earlier this week how Chinese side Shanghai SIPG didn’t want him.

So, it’s fair to say, he’s not in a great place.

And things have just got worse for the former Everton striker.


He’s only gone and forgotten to spell birthday.



Can you spot it? 

Yeah, it’s that massive lightbox (we didn’t know what it was either before we googled it) spelling birthday ‘birhtday’.

The Sun’s Bizarre column first spotted the error.

To be fair, it could have been wife Colleen – or even sons Kai or Clay – who made the error.

But Wayne was the one who posted it on Instagram so, you know, whoever smelt it, dealt it in our opinion.
