Manchester United ace Wayne Rooney admits his new hair plugs and a new hair stylist has inspired his new season form.

Rooney, 25, believes the "magical powers" of hair-whisperer Mr Daniel J have helped him score two consecutive hat-tricks.

"Daniel J always keeps me looking sharp," he said. "And when I look sharp, I feel sharp. I don't know what it is but it's like his haircuts have magical powers because every time he gives me a trim I seem to go and score."

Rooney has even got United teammate Rio Ferdinand and Spurs' Jermain Defoe using his lucky celeb crimper, too.

"All the lads have been asking me for Daniel's number," he added. "Of course I'm not giving it out to the [Manchester] City boys."
