He’s been in the doghouse so many times, he’s practically moved in. But last week, Wayne Rooney got himself in yet another mess, after revealing he’d been forced to self-isolate following a house-call from a friend to give him a designer watch, who just so happened to have coronavirus at the time (but didn’t know it).
Wayne later tested negative for the virus, but government guidelines meant he still had to quarantine at home for 10 days and miss playing vital games for Derby County – something which the club’s bosses weren’t too thrilled about.
And they weren’t the only ones. According to insiders, Coleen Rooney couldn’t quite believe that her footie husband has ballsed things up yet again – especially at a time when all eyes are on their family. And she’s now been left wondering whether she’ll spend the rest of her days hitting her head against a brick wall.
“Wayne may have tested negative for now, but there’s still the fear that he could be carrying the virus,” says an insider close to the footballer, who landed himself in hot water after letting his friend Josh Bardsley, 21, into his home. Josh, whose brother is Wayne’s footie friend Phil Bardsley, had dropped in on Wayne, 34, to present him with a freebie luxury watch – despite having been contacted by Track and Trace and told to stay inside. A later test showed that Josh had actually been Covid-positive at the time.
“Wayne is trying to deflect the story by saying how angry he is that his mate came into his home, but the reality is that Tier 2 restrictions were already in place, and Wayne shouldn’t have been letting anyone in. It’s a disaster for the Rooneys – Coleen’s asked him so many times to be careful and stop making it seem like he’s ‘above the rules’. It’s always something with him, and she honestly feels like his nagging mother a lot of the time.”

As heat has told you, Coleen’s been under an immense amount of pressure over the past few months as she knuckles down and makes final preparations for her big court showdown with Rebekah Vardy. (Rebekah’s suing her for defamation, after Col accused her Instagram account of leaking fake stories about, which Becky denies.) Clearly, the last thing she needs is extra scrutiny but, according to sources, Coleen feels the striker just isn’t playing ball. Instead, he’s continually landing himself in hot water…and the big problem is, he’s always got an excuse.
“Coleen really is fuming – as if she doesn’t have enough on her plate!” says our source. “When she asked Wayne why he’d let Josh in, he said that he hadn’t, but that Josh had just ‘popped over’. It infuriates her that Wayne never stops to think about anything, and it means she has to take on all this extra responsibility. It’s got her really feeling under pressure. Plus, he’s putting his career on the line too. It’s really taking its toll.”
Look! More news!
Earlier this month, we told you that Wayne was already back in that doghouse, having got drunk and made an ill-timed joke about their sex life to strangers at a showbiz party. Before that, he’d wound up his fans after claiming that footballers were being treated as “scapegoats” by being asked to take pay cuts. Now, we’re told, this latest fiasco is the final straw – and with Wayne still not being totally behind Coleen’s decision to face Rebekah in court, the couple are “still at loggerheads and having a lot of heated conversations.” Best call in the doghouse decorators, Wayne…you might be there a while.
