Wayne Rooney given rousing ovation from Derby County fans

Wayne Rooney was in the Derby County dugout for the Rams' 1-1 draw with QPR. Watch the Championship on ESPN+.

Former England captain Wayne Rooney was given a rousing reception before taking his place among Derby County's coaching staff for the first time at the start of his 18-month stint as player-coach at the Championship club.

Rooney watched from the dugout as Derby drew 1-1 with Queens Park Rangers at Pride Park on Saturday.

England's all-time leading scorer, who is not eligible to play until January, had his name chanted by Derby fans when he was introduced to supporters on the field before kickoff. He applauded in reply.

The former Manchester United and Everton star left Major League Soccer side D.C. United in October after a two-year stint in North America's top flight.
