He was seen popping out of The Device Lab, a phone repair shop in Wilmslow near his newbuild £20million Cheshire mansion.

Rooney, 34, was barred from the roads after he was stopped by the police driving party girl Laura Simpson, 31, home in her VW Beetle in September 2017.

He was stopped for a faulty light and officers found he had 104mcg of booze in his breath – almost three times the 35mcg limit – in Alderly Edge, Cheshire.

Wife Coleen, 33, was pregnant and away with pals at the time and barred him from partying and boozing following a furious bust-up over the scandal.

It is understand she was the driving force behind Rooney cutting his contract with American side DC United and starting as player-coach for Derby County this month.

She ripped into him after he was spotted getting into a lift at his Vancouver hotel at 5.30am with a mystery brunette in August last year.

Rooney has had a promising start as play-coach with the Rams winning two from two and getting an assist in his first appearance.

His snap getting behind the wheel comes after Zara Tindall, 38, was handed a six-month ban for doing 91mph in her Range Rover Sport.

The Queen’s granddaughter already had nine points on her licence from previous offences when she was clocked on a dual carriageway at Dartley Bottom, Gloucestershire.

She admitted breaking the 70mph limit on November 6 last year and was also made to pay £817 at Cheltenham magistrates court.
