Wayne Rooney has caused a stir this morning as he was pictured looking too drunk to stand as he gatecrashed a wedding.
In new pictures that have emerged, a red-eyed Wayne can be seen slumped on a couch with two women, with one wearing the footballer’s Three Lions jumper.
Guests at the five-star Grove Hotel in Hertfordshire has since told The Sun how Wayne was “paralytic” drunk after partying until 5am.
News of the 31-year-old’s booze up comes at a bad time as his football career reportedly hangs in the balance. The Manchester United star missed last night’s England friendly against Spain with a minor knee injury, and is said to have fallen out with Jose Mourinho.

Wayne married his wife Coleen back in 2008, and the pair have three boys together – Kai, 6, Klay, 3, and ten-month-old Kit.
A wedding source said,“Wayne went into the wedding with Jagielka and got absolutely plastered.
“He couldn’t string a sentence together and was falling over like the ‘comedy drunk’ – no-one could believe this was the England captain. He was out of his head sinking glass after glass of red wine.
“The pictures were taken in the early hours and everyone carried on drinking after that.”
Hotel staff, who would be familiar with the England team, also told how shocked they were to see Wayne in such a state.

“He was causing a commotion so word got around quickly. He was stumbling around a lot and could hardly speak. It’s a difficult situation for staff because the England players are here a lot, so we don’t want to upset them,” a member of staff said.
Meanwhile, a spokesman for Wayne has said, “Wayne, along with the rest of the England squad, was on a night off duty,”
“Rather than going out, he chose to stay at the team hotel to relax and celebrate a fine England victory against Scotland. During the course of the evening he was approached by numerous fellow guests for autographs and pictures.
“As he has always been, Wayne was happy to sign, pose for photos and chat with guests. It is sad that one or two of them have now sought to turn Wayne’s friendly good nature to their advantage,” the spokesman added.
