In spells at Everton and then Manchester United, the Liverpudlian has won the Champions League, the Premier League, captained his nation and become the top goalscorer in England's history.

But in that time few people have struggled so visibly to master the basic workings of the social media platform, Twitter.

While Rooney's talents on the field will be honoured at his Old Trafford testimonial tonight, we would prefer to take the opportunity to hail Rooney's skill for posting entertainingly weird tweets.

His first tweet was arguably his best...



Often, he got in Twitter arguments with himself...



He once tried, and failed, to kick-off his own film review page...



He used social media to upset Liverpool fans...

He announced his new hair with this touching tweet...

He's prone to Ricky Martin-esque outbursts...



He loves 'getting on the mic'...

He once cursed Tom Cleverley with this optimistic tweet...



He still doesn't use Twitter to its full potential...
