The Rams were drawn against the Red Devils in the fifth round of the FA Cup, which is scheduled to take place at Pride Park tonight.

Rooney spent more than 10 years with the Red Devils, and went on to become the club's record goalscorer with 253 strikes to go along with his numerous trophies.

Despite his previous allegiance to the 13-time Premier League winners, Rooney has his sights firmly set on the quarter-finals of the FA Cup.

"My time at Manchester United, I loved every minute of it. I am a Derby County player now and I want to win with Derby," he said, as per Sky Sports.

"For that 90 minutes, or 120 minutes, obviously I want Manchester United to lose.

"Everyone will understand that I want Derby to win in this game, and after that, I will go back to being a Manchester United fan and wanting them to win.

"The one team I wanted was Manchester United. We were on the coach, actually, going to the hotel the night before a game when the draw was taking place, and there was a cheer when United came out. It is a great draw for us."
