Everton footballer Wayne Rooney pleads guilty to drink-driving charge
Footballer Wayne Rooney has pleaded guilty to a charge of drink driving at Stockport Magistrates' Court.
Wearing a blue suit with his hands in his pockets, he had earlier walked into the court building accompanied by a small entourage.
He was charged after being stopped while driving a black Volkswagen Beetle in Wilmslow, Cheshire, at 2am on September 1.
The car belonged to a woman he had met in the Bubble Room bar in Alderley Edge on a night out.
Rooney was given a warm welcome at Old Trafford on his return to former club Manchester United on Sunday but it ended in disappointment with a 4-0 defeat for his boyhood club Everton.
He has been married to his high-school sweetheart Coleen since 2008 and they have three children together.
Mrs Rooney recently announced she is pregnant with their fourth child.
Rooney's next game for Everton is due to be Wednesday's Carabao Cup clash with Sunderland at Goodison Park.
