The forward netted the only goal for United to make it 11 in Manchester derbies.
Wayne Rooney broke an impressive record on Sunday when the Manchester United forward became the all-time top-scorer in derby fixtures with Manchester City.
The 27-year-old’s successfully converted free-kick made it 11 goals for Rooney in the fixture between the two sides, but with United on the end of a 4-1 thrashing the Englishman says the strike means nothing.
“It’s nice to score but it means nothing,” the attacker was quoted by the Mirror.
“The points were the most important thing and we’ve come away with none
“It’s not nice to lose to City by four goals to one.
“To lose by any score is bad, so we’re all really disappointed.”
The Red Devils were woeful as City overran the Premier League champions and went 4-0 up in under 60 minutes.
United’s defence simply could not cope with the speedy, attacking play of the Citizens and none of the club’s back four will come out of the game with any credit.
A brace from Sergio Aguero and strikes from Yaya Toure and Samir Nasri were enough to sink David Moyes’ men and Rooney was perhaps the only away player to come out of the tie with some positives.
Despite having angled for a move away from Old Trafford in the summer, since returning to the first team the England international has been in fine form.
Rooney has netted four goals in all competitions and along with Robin Van Persie, looks like the most likely star to drag United out of their poor slump in form.
