Wayne Rooney revealed he spoke to Steven Gerrard before he was announced as Derby County boss.

And Rooney has seemingly already asked for a few pointers from those with more experience in management, with former teammate Gerrard being in charge of Rangers since 2018.
Rooney told talkSPORT: “This moment has been coming in terms of me stopping playing, I’ve come to terms with that over the last two months and now I’ve got a new excitement, a new buzz to fulfil my potential as a manager so I’m excited.
“I spoke to Steven Gerrard yesterday actually. Obviously he’s a good friend of mine and I spoke to him to have a chat and had a good chat with him.
“Of course I’ve been speaking to players a little bit older than me but I’ve gone down the managerial route at a young age. I can only benefit from that.

“We may have different ideas, different styles with how we approach the game but there’s no harm speaking to them and learning from their experiences and what they’ve been through in the last couple of years.”
Rooney was also asked by talkSPORT’s Ian Abrahams about his favourite memories during his playing career.
Abrahams, a die hard West Ham fan, begged Rooney to not say it was his goal for from the halfway line at Upton Park while playing for Man United in 2014.
But Rooney had a brilliant response, correcting Abrahams on his facts, having also knocked in a goal from halfway against West Ham during his second spell at Everton in 2017.

He cheekily said: “There were two against West Ham from the halfway line, which one?”
Rooney added: “There have been so many but the first Premier League winners’ medal was a huge moment for us as a team. That was the start of our team going on a run of dominance.
“Obviously there was the Champions League and I think a big moment for me was winning the FA Cup which I watched Everton do as a fan in ’95. I lost two finals and didn’t think it was going to happen but then won it as captain and to lift the FA Cup at Wembley was a special moment.”
