Roy Hodgson backed Wayne Rooney to re-write the England history books after watching the striker gun down Scotland at Celtic Park.

Rooney became the third-highest scorer in England's history after scoring his 45th and 46th goals in the 3-1 victory in east Glasgow.

Few would back against Rooney reaching Sir Bobby Charlton's record of 49 goals by the end of the season.

Peter Shilton's record of 125 England caps is also within reach and Hodgson has little doubt the player will achieve both milestones sooner rather than later.

Records and milestones are important. It must be nice for him to think he'll see his name at the top of the list, and a record number of caps is in his sight too.

– Roy Hodgson, England Manager
