Man Utd ace Rooney facing gauntlet of hate: First Everton then Liverpool

Manchester United striker Wayne Rooney faces a massive test of character when the Premier League resumes this weekend. With cruel timing, United travel to Rooney's former club, Everton, where he always endures a hostile reception from fans who have never forgiven him for moving to Old Trafford in a £27million deal in August 2004.

A week after the Everton game, Rooney will have to brace himself for more abuse when United face Liverpool, although at least that game is at Old Trafford. In between the two matches, United take on Scottish champions Rangers in the Champions League.
