Cape Town - Wayne Rooney is desperate for England to beat Scotland in their international friendly on Tuesday night, so that he can have a go at former mentors Sir Alex Ferguson and David Moyes.

Wayne Rooney will not be going easy against Scotland on Tuesday night with bragging rights up for grabs according to the Daily Record.

“This is a massive game for me." said England's newest 100 cap member.

"We want to win. It’s about bragging rights for everyone. This is a massive fixture. We won’t be taking it lightly at all. We’ll be going in there to win.

“I don’t know whether the manager spoke to other players over being rested but 100 per cent I’ll be going there.

“With the history of England and Scotland – and I grew up with David Moyes and Alex Ferguson – this is certainly one I want to win.

“There was banter with Sir Alex about England and Scotland but I always came out on top.

“It won’t be a friendly. You have some games with England and there is that friendly feeling to it.

“But I always remember one of the most competitive games I’ve played for England was against Argentina in Switzerland. Against Scotland it won’t be like a friendly either.

“I can’t wait. It’s great for Britain and it will be a fantastic atmosphere.”
