(Video) Wayne Rooney jokes about how Gary Neville loved joining goal celebrations against rivals

Wayne Rooney took the opportunity to troll his former Manchester United teammate, Gary Neville, on Monday Night Football this week.

Neville wasn’t in the studio when Rooney jokingly out forward an underwhelming suggestion for the ‘highlight’ of the right-back’s career.

With Jamie Carragher in his usual spot, covering Premier League matches for Sky Sports, the pair laughed at how Neville had a habit of wildly celebrating his teammates’ goals.

The footage below – courtesy of Sky Sports Main Event – shows Rooney scoring against City in the Manchester derby before Neville runs on the scene.

Rooney told Sky Sports: “That actually happened a lot with Gaz and that is probably one of the highlights of his career going to celebrate with other players when they scored!”

You can tell Carragher enjoyed the joke at Neville’s expense.

Neville fined over goal celebration

In 2006, the FA fined Neville £5,000 and warned him about his future conduct following his celebrations after Rio Ferdinand’s late winner against Liverpool, as per The Guardian.

Neville raced 50 yards towards Liverpool fans at Old Trafford before kissing the United badge.

What a moment that was!
