WAYNE Rooney has warned Sunderland fans that Manchester United will not forget the gloating which greeted their defeat in the title race.

United suffered heartbreak on the final day of the season at the Stadium of Light after Manchester City’s stoppage time double earned them a maiden Premier League crown.

Sunderland supporters greeted news of City’s dramatic late comeback with cheers, before taunting United’s followers with the Poznan celebration practised by their neighbours.

England striker Rooney was not impressed by the sight, as United’s dejected players trudged off the pitch after failing in their bid to retain the title.

Rooney said: “When the final whistle went, we didn’t really know what the score at City was. But then we heard the Sunderland fans cheering. It was sad to see that because they should be supporting their own team really.

“They didn’t have the best of seasons, so for them to be cheering like that was sad.

“It was something myself and a lot of the players won’t forget.”
