These were the best Wayne Rooney renaissance jokes doing the rounds as the Manchester United striker continued his recent return to form with 2 goals at Newcastle.
England’s record goal-scorer also bagged an assist in the 3-3 draw at St James’s Park, while his 2016 goal-scoring tally now stands at 4 in 3 games.
However, many remained sceptical about the apparent Rooney renaissance…
When does this Rooney documentary finish? When does the game start?

Rooney hasn't played this well since his first hair transplant.

Rooney impressive for a couple of games now. Really earning his next 7 month dry spell.

Another draw though… Rooney's hair didn't die for this.

"Rooney inspirational tonight!" In a 3-3 draw with relegation candidates.

The only explanation is that Rooney's doing dry January.

Wonder if McLaren and Rooney will swap hair at full time?

What a goal! Wonder if the @btsport commentators saw it, or if they were too busy following Rooney around the pitch, professing their love?

Ryan Giggs didn't look too happy after Rooney scored. Was probably already taking the team to Anfield in his thoughts.

Rooney has risen from the dead. There's hope, @hazardeden10.
