"It's terrific for a young lad like Wayne to reach that total at that age. We've had players over the years who've taken many years to get to the hundred. For a young lad to do it, it's great."
- Sir Alex Ferguson
"You forget how young Wayne still is because he's achieved so much in his career. It's a fantastic achievement to score 100 goals - not many people do that at any club."
- Michael Owen
The Reds' striker rose brilliantly to head home his 100th United goal on 55 minutes, and it didn't take him long to bang in no.101, albeit via a wicked deflection off Mario Melchiot.
Rooney was delighted to bring up his ton, but remains fully focused on adding to his tally.
"Of course it's nice to score 100 goals for anyone, especially a team like United, so obviously I'm pleased with that," he said. "But it's something I'll look back on really when I've finished playing. I've still got a lot of games and a lot of goals left in me."
In celebration of his phenomenal achievement, we take a look back at a selection of his best goals in a red shirt. Enjoy.
