The New York Red Bulls supporters welcomed Wayne Rooney with a massive artwork behind the goal at Red Bull Arena, and it was pretty brutal.

Rooney's D.C. United travelled to the Red Bulls on Monday night, eventually losing the game 1-0 thanks to a goal from Alejandro Romero.

However, the match was overshadowed by a banner that was put on display by the home side's supporters prior to kick-off.

The Red Bulls fans unveiled a TIFO which replaced the eagle's head in the D.C. United logo with Rooney's head, with the caption: "BALD EAGLES: AN ENDANGERED SPECIES".

The former Manchester United and Everton ace has long been the subject of mocking over his hairline, having had a hair transplant back in 2011.
