Excitement around his return has been undermined by news he will wear the number 32 shirt when he joins in January as part of the club’s partnership with 32Red.  Rooney will earn a reported £100,000 a week. The average weekly wage in the Championship is £20,000.

Derby owner Mel Morris says the deal was a means to "leverage Wayne’s involvement". He added: "Obviously, the commercial opportunities this creates are widespread and significant."  

The former minister who helped mastermind the 2005 Gambling Act, Richard Caborn, said the partnership is an embarrassment. 

"It's not very clever this - it all seems a bit crass," he told the Daily Telegraph. "Wayne Rooney, who has got kids himself, should perhaps know this is not the brightest. The gambling companies need to be doing themselves favours at the moment, but this is not going to go down well with football authorities or the Government."

Rooney takes the No 32 shirt, despite 7, 12, 13, 15 and 18 - the number he wore at his first spell at Everton - being vacant.

"To be honest, the number that I wear is not a big deal," Rooney said later as he was unveiled at the club. "I’ve worn many numbers throughout my career, Nos 18, 8, 9, 10, 23, now 32, for me, the important thing was to come back and help the team, the number isn’t a big deal whatever it is."
