Discussing the attack, Rooney said: “There are moments in life that instantly affect you and stop you in your tracks.

“Monday night was one of those occasions. Like so many others, I have enjoyed great nights at the arena, often with my family.

“As a father, I am horrified that a night out for so many young people could end so tragically.”
