Nottingham Forest and Derby County have one of the most heated rivalries in English football, so inevitably anything the Rams do will have their rival supporters talking.

With Wayne Rooney heavily linked with a move to last season’s playoff finalists, many Forest fans have been discussing the move.

The former Manchester United striker has apparently been offered a contract to sign as a player-coach at Pride Park.

In recent seasons Derby have had some strong links with ex-England stars. Just last year they appointed Frank Lampard as their manager, and in January they signed Ashley Cole on a short-term deal.

The Rams will be hoping to go one better than last year by securing a spot in the Premier League and bringing in a man who has scored over 200 Premier League goals will certainly help their cause.

Of course, many Forest fans will have been supporters of Rooney during his time playing for England. The forward captained the Three Lions for a number of years, and in 2015 he became the nation’s all-time record goalscorer.

The City Ground faithful were unhappy to see a man they previously had so much admiration for joining their most hated rivals.

Other supporters weren’t coy on the fact that they were jealous to see Derby bringing in such a talented player.

One fan stated that Rooney is past his best and he won’t be a good signing for Derby, but his recent record of scoring 23 goals in his last two MLS seasons may indicate that he is wrong about this one.
