'Shut up you absolute idiot' - Rooney's wife slams England captain's critics on Twitter

Coleen Rooney took to the popular social media platform to hit back at the forward's detractors after being booed during England's 2-0 win over Malta on Saturday

Wayne Rooney's wife has hit back at her husband's critics after he was booed during England's 2-0 win over Malta on Saturday.

'Pep is more arrogant than Mourinho'

The Three Lions skipper, 30, was jeered several times during the World Cup qualifier at Wembley Stadium.

Rooney has been benched for Manchester United's last two Premier League games, while he has also been dropped for England's clash with Slovenia on Tuesday.

And Coleen Rooney has since slammed the detractors in an angry outburst on Twitter.

She wrote: “Love the way Anyone & Everyone has to have an Opinion. Lighten up, life is short, give people a break. Some forget others have feelings too.”

When one United fan mentioned about the amount of money Wayne earns, Coleen reacted with: “Shut up you absolute idiot.”

Other users also made the same point about the England captain's earnings before Coleen closed the rant by tweeting: “Rant over!! Just get wound up like everyone else sometimes. Have a nice day.”
