Relief for Rooney

Wayne Rooney ended his goal drought with a hat-trick as Manchester United beat Club Brugge to book their place in the Champions League group stages.

United led 3-1 from the first leg and Rooney added to that with a dinked shot for his first goal of the season.

The striker had a simple tap-in for his second goal after midfielder Ander Herrera’s unselfish pass.

Rooney swept in a shot for his third and Herrera sidefooted in before Javier Hernandez missed a United penalty.

Hernandez also wasted a late chance as he skied a shot from four yards out.

United will now go into Thursday’s group stage draw following a one-season absence.
