BALDY no more.
Manchester United star Wayne Rooney revealed some hair to his 784,000 Twitter followers yesterday.
He posted: "I've had a hair transplant. I'm delighted."
In a later post, along with an uploaded picture of his bloody and bruised head, he wrote: "Hi all there's my head. It will take a few months to grow. Still a bit bloody to. But that's all normal."
Rooney, 25, was later spotted at the Manchester airport en route to Barbados with wife Coleen and son Kai, hiding his new thatch under a baseball cap.
United defender Rio Ferdinand, 32, replied to Rooney's post with a joke about former team-mate Cristiano Ronaldo.
He wrote: "Can't wait to see you in the mirror after training styling your locks with loads a products ala Ronaldo!"
Rooney answered: "Haha, few months until that."
While Rooney and his fellow Manchester United players Ferdinand (1.15 million followers) and Michael Owen (434,530) have become avid users of Twitter, their boss did not share the same enthusiasm.
Sir Alex Ferguson has said he doesn't understand his players' obsession with Twitter, branding it a waste of time.
"I don't know why anybody can be bothered with that kind of stuff. How do you find the time to do that? There are a million things you can do in your life without that," he said.
"Get yourself down to the library and read a book. Seriously."
