During a scenic walk, Neville, a former teammate and long-time friend, probed Rooney on various aspects of his career, leading to a surprising revelation about the club Rooney wished he had played for Celtic.

Rooney, whose football journey is marked by record-setting achievements at both Manchester United and the England national team, expressed a clear and immediate preference for Celtic when asked about any clubs he wished he had the opportunity to represent.

“Celtic,” Rooney stated without hesitation when asked by Neville which club he wished he had played for during his playing days.

It’s a brilliant fascinating “what if” scenario. He was a tremendous player, what could he have achieved at Celtic?

Having been the all-time top scorer for Manchester United and England, Rooney’s potential stint at Celtic could have been monumental for both the player and the club, potentially influencing domestic competitions and European campaigns.
