Rooney, who re-signed for the Toffees from Manchester United earlier this summer, scored the opener in his side’s 1-1 draw at the Etihad Stadium.
And his goal was similar to the second of two he netted for United in December 2012, just months after City won their dramatic first Prem title.
And as he wheeled away in celebration to his right, the same fans were caught on camera giving Rooney some lip in the stands, clearly showing their dedication with the same season ticket seats.
There were a few ‘V’ signs coming from some members of the crowd, but the Everton striker clearly revelled in the banter.
He joked on Twitter: “Always nice to see a few familiar faces.”
