It appears Wayne Rooney is a hot shot in more ways than one as he was caught up in an ‘incident’ with Blackburn Rovers defender Michael Gray last Saturday night.

It seems like Rooney, with fiancĂ©e Coleen McLoughlin in toe, was approached by 32-year-old Gray in the Panacea Bar and Restaurant in Manchester and it is claimed the 32-year-old made some offensive comments to the ladies in Rooney’s party.

Rooney’s spokesman said: ‘Wayne asked him to go several times. It was a brief incident. Wayne and Coleen were enjoying a night out with three other couples when Michael came up to their table uninvited.’ Adding: ‘As far as Wayne is concerned, he bears no ill-feeling towards Michael.’

The BBC quote a Blackburn spokesman saying: ‘Michael took steps to make manager Mark Hughes aware of it. Michael had the opportunity to make a comment but he doesn’t want to get involved in it.’

Greater Manchester Police said no incident was reported.
