Rooney: Record means a lot but I'm still disappointed.



Wayne Rooney was delighted to become to Manchester United's record goalscorer with a last-gasp equaliser against Stoke City on Saturday but wasn't happy they didn't seal three points on the day.

The England and United captain scored his 250th goal for club with a sublime free-kick in the fourth minute of injury time to cancel out Stoke City's opener in the 19th minute at the Britannia stadium.

And following the clash, Rooney told Sky Sports: "It means a hell of a lot. "It is a great honour and I am very proud.

"It is difficult at the minute to be over-pleased because of the result but in the grand scheme it is huge honour.


"It's something I never expected when I joined the club but I'm delighted and very proud.

"It's been great, very successful, and there's a lot more to come."

Rooney hopes the point gained against the Potters will prove to be a valuable point at the end of the campaign.


"It could be vital for us come the end of the season," said the 31-year-old. "It's not nice to lose football games and we kept pushing but couldn't get the goal and it looked like it'd be the case.

"There's a long way to go. We've seen over the last few weeks how things can happen. We have to keep picking up points."
