Manchester United's Wayne Rooney has credited his outstanding recent form to his lucky black gloves, according to a report in The Sun.

Wayne Rooney gloves - 0

Rooney has been enjoying his best ever season with the Red Devils, bagging over 30 goals already this season - the biggest haul of his career.

And a source at Old Trafford told the newspaper that he believes his lucky gloves have helped him on his way - so much so that he is set to keep them on even as Britain comes out of a cold winter into a mild spring.

"Wayne's become a bit superstitious about these gloves," an Old Trafford insider told the newspaper.

"Since he started wearing them he's been scoring plenty of headers - not something he was renowned for.

"If he carries on like this, he could still be wearing these gloves on a baking hot day in May."
