Wayne Rooney scores his 100th Premier League goal at Old Trafford and we're all a bit impressed

Updated: 

Wayne Rooney has now scored his 100th Premier League goals at Old Trafford - in the final game of the season against Bournemouth. Only Thierry Henry has scored more at one ground, scoring 114 in Highbury.

Rooney's first at Manchester United's home ground was back in 2004 against Arsenal. The skipper is now just four goals behind the club's all time top scorer Sir Bobby Charlton.

The match took place two days after a bomb scare forced its hasty rearrangement and United coasted to a 3-1 victory.

Central midfield seems to be a thing now for Rooney, as he impressed in his new position against Bournemouth. Just a point against the side would see United keep fifth place in the table (they needed to win 19-0 for fourth place to gain a Champions League spot).

Rooney assisted United's next two goals. One from Marcus Rashford - to follow up his England call up.

And Ashley Young made it three.

Some never lost hope of fourth place.

While some never turned up to watch.

And Louis van Gaal made a speech to the stadium afterwards, thanking fans for their "unconditional support" (while the stadium was half empty. Awks).
