After scoring his seventh successive header last night, Wayne Rooney has claimed it’s all down to his receding hair line!

“It’s coming off my bald patch and that’s helping me score,” joked Rooney. “I’ve been working on my heading a lot and thankfully it’s paying off. ‘I’ve been in the box a lot more, I’ve been working on my timing and my finishing. I’ve played up front in every game I’ve played this season and that’s definitely the main reason for me scoring a lot of goals.”
