Wayne, Wayne, Go Away

‘IF you go down to the woods today, you’re in for a big surprise – thousands of Scousers on their hands and knees looking for Wayne Rooney’s £25,000 engagement ring.

‘Finders keepers’

The Sun says Coleen McLoughlin chucked the diamond sparkler into the densely-wooded squirrel sanctuary near the couple’s home in Formby to signal the end of her relationship with the cheating 18-year-old striker.

A sobbing Coleen apparently told Rooney that she was leaving him over reports that he had sex with a £140-a-trick prostitute called Charlotte Glover.

And before he could stop her she hurled the platinum and diamond ring, designed by Rooney himself, into the undergrowth of the National Trust property.

“The squirrel sanctuary is full of trees and bushes,” a friend of the pair said. “It will be a nightmare to find the ring.”

Not that that is likely to stop people trying – although, because the Sun is still newspaper non grata in Liverpool, true Scousers will have to rely on the Star or Mirror for directions.

And both papers this morning insist the couple are still together after watching them give each other a big kiss as they left Coleen’s parents’ house in Croxteth.

The Star says Coleen puckered up to prove she’s standing by the ace, while the Mirror says the kiss quashes rumours that the pair have split.

But the Sun is sticking by its version of events, claiming the kiss was a set-up and “all a pantomime”.

With Rooney as King Rat…’
