United had a campaign to forget as they finished in sixth spot and without silverware for a second successive campaign.

Rooney, who left the Red Devils two years ago, feels players are hiding behind their social media accounts.

"You have got players losing a game and posting something on social media about their new clothing range, their new aftershave, whatever they're bringing out, which I find remarkable," the veteran striker told  The Wayne Rooney Podcast

"When fans speak up on it and say 'why are you posting that?' they always have the marketing people to blame [but] take responsibility.

"They work for you. Those marketing people work for you. I have people who do similar stuff for me and they never do anything without my instructions.
 
"If that is what you're doing, you're sitting at the top of that business. You have to take responsibility for them.
 
"These players almost always like to find someone to hide behind, whether that is on their social media or on the football pitch and that's what they are doing."
