WAYNE ROONEY ‘CELEBRATED’ his birthday on Sunday night, despite seeming to be in no mood for a party.

The United star was photographed with a glum expression, presumably owing to United’s ignominious 6-1 defeat to City yesterday.

The player organised a meal for his 26 guests, who included Man City players Gareth Barry and Joe Hart, at his favourite Chinese restaurant – Wings.

Speaking to the Sun, an onlooker said: “He looked a bit miserable at first but I guess that’s hardly surprising after getting stuffed like that.”

Meanwhile, in a rare piece of good news for United of late, Javier Hernandez has a signed a new five-year contract with the club.
