It’s official – Wayne Rooney is now Manchester United’s record goalscorer in Europe with 39 goals.

Rooney’s first-half chip against Feyenoord in Thursday’s Europa League match at Old Trafford sent him clear of Ruud van Nistelrooy’s impressive tally of 38, which the Reds captain equalled when he netted in the away defeat to Fenerbahce earlier this month.

The next personal achievement in Rooney’s sights is, of course, the club’s all-time record for goals in all competitions. His strike against Feyenoord was his 248th for United, just one short of Sir Bobby Charlton’s long-standing total of 249.
