Manchester United striker Wayne Rooney warned a Twitter follower who threatened him, "I'll put u asleep within 10 seconds".

England forward Rooney found himself drawn into an angry exchange after the follower, who appeared to be a fan of Liverpool, United's arch-rivals, taunted him by saying: "Rooney ya fat whore ill smash ya head in with a pitchin wedge an bury ya with a ballast fork..."

Rooney dared the follower to meet him at United's training ground to carry out his threat, replying: "I will put u asleep within 10 seconds hope u turn up if u don't gonna tell everyone ur scared u little nit. I'll be waiting."

The 25-year-old United hero later tried to laugh off the situation by posting: "Haha bit of banter and people go nuts chill all people."

The Twitter account belonging to the follower who taunted Rooney has since been deleted.
