Wayne Rooney has been banned from driving for two years after pleading guilty to drink driving.

The Everton forward was also handed a 12-month community order and 100 hours of unpaid work after appearing at Stockport Magistrates’ Court.

In a statement, Rooney said: “Following today’s court hearing I want to publicly apologise for my unforgivable lack of judgement in driving while over the legal limit. It was completely wrong.
