It’s a shame Wayne Rooney felt the need to spend thousands of pounds on buying himself some more hair but, let’s face it, he can afford it.

The thing is, many people have found his baldness – and the fact he’s so sensitive to it – a source of much mirth.

Not Manchester United fans obviously – it appears that, to them, he can do no wrong. But the chances are if you’re not a fan of his team, you’re probably not right keen on him.

Yet I can’t help thinking he missed a trick when he announced he’d had a hair transplant on Twitter.

The funnier option would have been for him to whip up a little fervent speculation.

If Rooney had turned up for training in a different wig each day, I’m sure many people would have found themselves warming to him.
