Former Liverpool star Stan Collymore is hopeful that Wayne Rooney’s return to Everton will see him end his career on a high.
The Toffees confirmed that the 31-year-old had moved back to Goodison Park on Sunday after spending 13 glorious years with Manchester United as he penned a two-year contract.
Rooney has won all there is to win at club level at Old Trafford, including five Premier League titles and one Champions League title, but Collymore has suggested that it would be the perfect end to the England international’s career if he was to lift one more title with his boyhood club.
“Great feel good story with Rooney going back to Everton. Genuinely hope he finishes his career with a trophy wearing Blue. Good luck,” said Collymore on his personal Twitter account on Sunday afternoon.

Rooney will be joining up with other new arrivals including Jordan Pickford, Davy Klaassen, Sandro Ramirez and Michael Keane ahead of the upcoming Premier League season, which kicks off in just over a month when Everton welcome Stoke to Goodison Park.
The Toffees’ newest signing Rooney has endured a tough couple of seasons at Man United, as he struggled to reach the level of performances that he so often showcased in the early part of his career.
The attacker, who usually plays in a more reserved midfield role now, played just 25 times under Jose Mourinho in the Premier League last term, scoring five goals.
