Derby County Boss Wayne Rooney Responds To Idea Of Signing Ravel Morrison After Boot Theft Admission

Manchester United legend Wayne Rooney has ruled out the idea of handing Ravel Morrison a lifeline by signing him for Derby County.

Morrison, 28, is currently a free agent after his contract with Dutch club ADO Den Haag was terminated last month.

The former United player recently made an appearance on Rio Ferdinand's FIVE YouTube channel.

"Obviously, I was on a scholar wage, obviously I was young," he said.

"And then you used to get like £250 for a pair of boots -- you take two pairs of boots you get £500. You get home and then you buy your family a Chinese or something. It's like, 'wow!'"

Morrison added: "I didn't mean it to cause so much harm.

"When I used to see yours or Rooney's deliveries, you would get like 20 or 30 pairs a time.

"So I'm thinking, 'One pair of boots to put some food and money on the table at my home.' I didn't think it would be a big problem."

Even United legend Ferdinand suggested that his former teammate 'could have been a £100m player' had his situation at the Red Devils been handled better.

The United legend was asked about Morrison's boots confession and if there was any possibility the door could be open for him at Derby.

The Rams head coach explained: "Obviously, I know Ravel because I played with him, but I am happy with the squad I've got, it's a good squad of players.

"I hope Ravel can find a club which he deserves, because he's a fantastic player, and I wish him all the best.

"I can't recall him taking my boots, so he can have them."
