WAYNE ROONEY ended his MLS career on a low after Toronto thrashed DC United 5-1 in the play-offs.
Ex-Manchester United striker Rooney played his final game in the States before he joins Championship outfit Derby in January.
The 33-year-old Premier League legend had a hand in DC United’s equaliser as his cross was knocked on to Lucas Rodriguez who equalised at 1-1 to send the game to extra-time.
But in a disastrous 30 minutes, goals from Richie Laryea, a Jonathan Osorio double and Nick DeLeon strike sent Rooney’s side packing.
Toronto now advance to an Eastern Conference semi-final on Wednesday against East top seed New York City.
DC United skipper and top scorer Rooney arrived Stateside in the middle of last season and guided the club from league strugglers to a playoff contenders.
But the former Everton man confirmed in August he was returning to England at the end of the MLS campaign to be a player and assistant coach for Derby.
United manager Ben Olsen said: “He has been a big plus for this club.
“He has helped us in a big way.”
