Man U. striker went straight to casino from airport after returning from an international fixture in Belarus.
Wayne Rooney celebrated a successful international match - at the casino! British newspaper The Mirror has reported that English football star Wayne Rooney lost £65,000 in a two-hour gambling spree after hitting a casino at 4 AM.
The Manchester United striker went on his spree after arriving home from a successful World Cup qualifier in Belarus, in which he scored two goals in a 3-1 English victory.
Rooney 23, hit a members-only club in Manchester to play blackjack and roulette at £500 tables.
This is not the first time Rooney has thrown away big bucks at the casino.
In November 2007, he went on a £250,000 gambling spree while accompanying his Manchester United teammates to a Manchester casino to celebrate captain Rio Ferdinand's birthday.
And two years ago the Sunday Mirror reported that Rooney racked up £700,000 in debts while running a secret England national team dressing room gambling ring.
