Wayne Rooney’s wild Saturday night out finished with pictures of the sleeping star being shared far and wide on social media.
The England and Man Utd striker, 35, was seen enjoying himself in an exclusive nightclub in Manchester.
But hours later he was photographed asleep in a hotel room with scantily clad women around him.
Married Rooney, now manager of Derby County, hit the town after his side lost 2-1 to Salford City.
He was later seen chatting to a mystery woman in the club, before being pictured in a hotel room with social media model Tayler Ryan and her friends Elise Melvin and Brooke Morgan, all 21.
There is no suggestion married Rooney did anything untoward or behaved inappropriately and a friend of the girls insists there was no sexual contact.
The images and videos surfaced on Twitter on Sunday morning after being shared among fans groups on WhatsApp.
Here, we look at how the night unfolded…
Salford City match
Rooney-managed Derby County lost 2-1 to Salford City in a pre-season friendly at the latter’s Peninsula Stadium on Saturday afternoon.
He said during a post-match interview he was pleased with the performance.
Despite the defeat he said “there was some very good moments”.
Following the match, Rooney went on a night out with his friends in Manchester city centre, ending up at exclusive club Chinawhite in Deansgate.
At some stage, the former Manchester United forward invited social media model Tayler Ryan and her friends Elise Melvin and Brooke Morgan, all 21, to join them in his VIP booth.
It’s understood this was during an afterparty event in the early hours of Sunday.
Rooney – who has four kids with wife Coleen – was later snapped talking to a mystery blonde woman on the dancefloor.
Later on, Rooney and two of his friends joined the girls in their £60-a-night room at Staycity hotel.
Ms Ryan and her friends took multiple photos posing alongside Rooney, in some of which he appears to have dozed off.
In one – captioned “no words no papz” – he is gesticulating with his right hand while holding a glass of wine in his left.
In others he is seen looking a little worse for wear as he poses for selfies with the model.
It’s believed at some point, the England all-time leading goalscorer fell asleep and was unaware of certain snaps being taken without his consent.
In several he is seen sitting upright in a hotel room chair with his hands in his pockets apparently asleep while the girls jokingly pose around him.
A video clip of one of the girls larking about and flashing her bum near the sleeping Premier League legend has been viewed over 175,000 times.
A similar shot, which shows her skirt around her knees inches from the star’s head is titled “Mooney Rooney”.
Another snap is titled “Sleepy Wayne” and features one of the women posing beside him with her tongue out while making the peace sign.
Rooney has been in a relationship with childhood sweetheart Coleen for nearly two decades.
Back to work
This afternoon, Rooney reported for training at Derby’s at Moor Farm ahead the next friendly against Real Betis on Wednesday.
The Mirror has contacted Rooney’s representatives for comment.
The police decide not to investigate
Police are not investigating any alleged crimes in relation to pictures of Rooney, it was announced this afternoon.
It was earlier reported the matter had been reported to officers, but a spokeswoman for Greater Manchester Police confirmed: “There is no police involvement at this time.”
