"It's just over four weeks now since I last played and I'm delighted to have the time on the pitch." Rooney told Sky Sports.
"It's always difficult, your first game back after a few weeks out, but it's great for me to get the minutes under my belt and hopefully that will benefit me."
The forward is now hopeful of building upon his successful return.
"It was a good run out for me and I'm obviously delighted. Hopefully there's a lot more games to come."
