Coleen Rooney defends under-fire husband Wayne Rooney

The wife of England captain Wayne Rooney launches a defence of her husband Wayne Rooney on Twitter.

The wife of England captain Wayne Rooney has launched a staunch defence of her husband by taking to social media site Twitter on Monday afternoon.

Rooney, who has lost his Manchester United spot in recent weeks, is once again in the spotlight after being booed by supporters during England's 2-0 win over Malta at the weekend.

It has been reported that the Three Lions captain will be dropped for Tuesday's 2018 World Cup qualifier with Slovenia, which has led to widespread delight on Twitter.

Coleen Rooney issued a tweet just before 2pm which seemed to be aimed at her husband's critics, before replying to a user that commented on the Man United captain's wage packet.

"Not a**** about money so you can stop the sarcasm... you know when it's constantly on the news which I don't know why it still is today cause the press and FANs should be positive about there TEAM (not just one player) going into and preparing for the game tomorrow," Coleen Rooney replied.

"And you have a six-year-old son listening to them saying they booed their dad, it's not nice and money does not enter my mind or his or anyone close to us!! It's feelings that matter. We're not plastic, he's not plastic we are people it was on the radio in the car before anyone goes onto say why is a 6 year old reading things."
