Tearful Wayne Rooney pays poignant tribute to late sister-in-law

Dailymail.co.uk :    Wayne Rooney paid a poignant tribute to his late sister-in-law after scoring the winning goal for Manchester United in the FA Cup.

After netting the goal against West Ham on Wednesday evening, a visibly emotional Rooney blew a kiss and raised his arms to the sky – an apparent reference to Rosie McLouglin who died, aged 14, earlier this month.

Rosie, sister of his wife Coleen, died after a lifelong battle with the rare genetic disorder Rett Syndrome.
