Hull City manager Steve Bruce interrupted his post-match press conference on Saturday to watch Wayne Rooney's halfway line wondergoal for Manchester United against West Ham.

Speaking to reporters after his side's 2-0 victory over West Bromwich Albion at the KC Stadium, the Tigers boss halted proceedings after catching the sensational strike out of the corner of his eye on a television at the back of the room.

"Whoah, what a goal - you're never going to see anything like it again," enthused Bruce. "That's more important than me, wait till you see this.

"Aw, look at the goalie, he's run the wrong way! Wow, Wazza, jeez."

Bruce - a former Manchester United player himself - could not hide his amazement at Rooney's superlative strike, which caught Hammers goalkeeper Adrian unexpectedly at Upton Park.

The Old Trafford striker's goal has already drawn comparisons to David Beckham's long-range effort against Wimbledon in 1996, and Rooney joked after the game that it was indeed better than the ex-England captain's.

Beckham was in attendance with his children on Saturday to watch the Red Devils, and looked like he too enjoyed Rooney's goal judging by his reaction from the stands in east London.

"That's better than any of my drivel," concluded Bruce, after watching the Manchester United goal on replay a couple of times. "Right, Shane Long, what? Sorry?"
