The Tottenham Hotspur winger won the accolade along with the Young Player of the Year award on Sunday night following a fantastic season in which he has scored 19 goals in the Premier League.

Rooney wrote on Twitter: "Congrats to Gareth Bale on winning both awards tonight. I think Van Persie or Suarez should of won it though."

He added: "Buzzing De Gea was in team of year. Yes David well deserved."
