PADDY KENNY has hit back at Wayne Rooney after the Manchester United legend criticised his role in Man City’s 2012 title triumph.
The former Red Devils and England skipper says Kenny, who was then a goalkeeper at QPR, “should have done better” to stop the Citizens from picking up their first ever Premier League crown with a dramatic 3-2 win over the Rs.
Rooney blamed Kenny for conceding two goals in the final few seconds of the game and felt he could have stopped Edin Dzeko and Sergio Aguero from scoring in additional time to win it ahead of United on goal difference.
Rooney told الشمس: “Paddy Kenny should have done better for a couple of the goals.
“City get the second goal and QPR kick it straight back to them and that’s never been questioned – I find that strange.
“Djibril Cisse celebrating after the game with the City players, but yeah listen it’s a historic moment in the Premier League so I’m sure that – if you are not involved as a Manchester United player, that’s probably one of the greatest moments in the league.”

Kenny has now taken to social media to seemingly respond to the Derby County boss by poking fun at him over Rooney’s appearance during the “Wagatha Christie” court case.
And he says that Aguero’s winner had aged England’s all-time top goalscorer beyond his years.
Kenny shared a snap of himself drinking a beer and compared it to a photo of Rooney attending court to support his wife كولين in her legal row with Rebekah Vardy.
The ex-Republic of Ireland stopper clipped the two images side-by-side and captioned it with: “36 v 44 Rooney must of let that Aguero goal get to him.”
