Watch Wayne Rooney's son Klay, 8, score amazing try in tag rugby as Man Utd legend's son tries hand at different sport

KLAY ROONEY is making a big name tag for himself.

Wayne Rooney's son, eight, streaked away for a solo try in tag rugby – after NOT following in the legendary footsteps of the ex-Manchester United and England footballer.


Proud mum Coleen posted a clip of the magical touchdown with the words "GO KLAY".

It comes just days after 11-year-old Kai Rooney, the eldest of the couple's four sons, netted all four goals as United's Under-12s lost 5-4 to Liverpool.

Klay scooped up a bouncing ball virtually on his own line before slaloming through this way and that to thrust it down at the other end.

And sports fans on Twitter were almost as quick as Klay's scorching run in the way they rushed in to praise him.

One hailed his "great balance great vision" while another said: "He's absolutely rinsed them" – with a laughing-crying emoji.

It's not yet known precisely how Klay wants to develop his sporting passion.

And of course at just eight that's understandable.

But he's had life-size cut-outs of WWE wrestlers John Cena and Dwayne 'The Rock' Johnson for birthday gifts and worn LA Lakers' basketball kit.

Kai, on the other hand, seems focused on progressing in football, like his famous dad.

Goodison Park all-time great Wayne, now manager of stricken championship club Derby, and Kai are both Everton fans.

But unlike Rooney senior, Kai has chosen to START his football career at Old Trafford.

He might eventually face the typical frustrations of United academy products if he stays on track and encounters their abundance of talent, from both home and abroad.

But for now Kai could hardly be doing better.

Back in May he bagged a hat-trick and three assists in a 6-3 win over Stoke.

Cristiano Ronaldo's same-aged son, Cristiano Jr, is also in United's youth system.

What price both junior jewels making it through to the Old Trafford first team?
