Ex-QPR keeper Kenny happy winding up Rooney and Man Utd fans over Aguero celebrations

Former QPR goalkeeper Paddy Kenny has enjoyed winding up Manchester United fans.

Kenny, 44, took aim at United supporters with a dig about Wayne Rooney's age after the Old Trafford legend questioned how Manchester City won the Premier League title in 2012. In an interview a decade on from that extraordinary day at the Etihad, old Wazza questioned the manner of City's dramatic final day win.

"Paddy Kenny should have done better for a couple of the goals," Rooney, 36 suggested. "City get the second goal and QPR kick it straight back to them and that's never been questioned - I find that strange."

Kenny initially responded with a tweet comparing how he and Rooney look now versus their respective ages, drawing significant blowback from United fans.

"36 v 44 Rooney must of (sic) let that Aguero goal get to him," the former Republic of Ireland stopper wrote next to a picture of himself drinking a beer and Rooney sporting a beard.

Kenny doubled down on his trolling of the Red Devils in a later tweet, saying: "I've lived in Man Utd fans heads all day rent free."
