Sir Bobby Charlton says Wayne Rooney is "a true great for club and country" after the striker broke his Manchester United all-time goalscoring record.

Rooney's injury time equaliser against Stoke was his 250th for United, breaking Charlton's 44-year-old record.

"I would be lying to say that I'm not disappointed to have lost the record," Charlton, who's 79, told the United website.

"However, I can honestly say that I'm delighted for Wayne. He deserves his place in the history books."

"He is a true great for club and country, and it is fitting that he is now the highest goalscorer for both United and England."

Rooney tweeted this thanks to Sir Bobby Charlton for his kind words in the dressing room and said it was a 'huge honour' to become the club's leading goalscorer.
