Arsenal fan Piers Morgan had some fun with Wayne Rooney on Twitter today. The host of Piers Morgan Live on CNN is known to taunt Manchester United and their fans, and he was in rare form here. Wayne Rooney scored twice to overtake Robin van Persie as the club’s top Premier League scorer, by 8 to 7, with the Dutchman injured for the past two games. However, it wasn’t enough as the Red Devils tied the Tottenham Hotspurs 2-2; it was the second draw for United in the last two Premier League matches. And for Piers Morgan, it provided fodder for social media smack talk. The news talk show host made some jokes at Rooney’s expense, and then you have another antagonist, this one going after Piers Morgan. Watch what he does in response. Your back will collapse from carrying Utd > RT @WayneRooney: @piersmorgan it’s a long season. Heard all this before mate. Let’s wait and see — Piers Morgan (@piersmorgan) December 1, 2013   Ps. When your back does go, tell the doc it’s Shrek Strain… @WayneRooney — Piers Morgan (@piersmorgan) December 1, 2013   a) I do b) It’s ‘their’ > RT @chazmullen: @piersmorgan @WayneRooney would love to see you saying what u say on here to there faces #muppet — Piers Morgan (@piersmorgan) December 1, 2013   Paul M.
