Jokes! Gary Lineker tweets ‘Wayne Rooney retires’ as Man United man closes in on his England record

Wayne Rooney scored a brace for England against Scotland tonight, which takes him ever closer to Sir Bobby Charlton’s all time goalscoring record.

Rooney is now sitting pretty on 46 goals, just 3 off Sir Bobby’s milestone, and two behind second-placed Gary Lineker.

The MOTD presenter, clearly proud of his 2nd spot, sent a joke tweet after the game, announcing that Rooney has now retired from international football, which would keep his record safe.

Chin up Gaz, you can always take pride in your better goals to games ratio!
