These were the best jokes after Wayne Rooney appeared at Stockport Magistrates’ Court on Monday and admitted drink-driving.
The Everton striker was reportedly arrested earlier this month when police stopped a car in Wilmslow, Cheshire in the middle of the night.
31-year-old Rooney has now been banned from driving for two years and ordered to do 100 hours of unpaid work as part of a 12-month community order.
He must also pay £170, which includes prosecution costs and a victim surcharge.
In a statement, the player said:
Of course I accept the sentence of the court and hope that I can make some amends through my community service.

Wayne Rooney is available for 100 hours to tarmac your driveway. He may require a lift to work though.

Rooney got lucky with that sentence. 100 hours community service which the judge said includes playing for Everton.
