Former Wigan striker Hugo Rodallega has claimed that he often saw Wayne Rooney 'drinking like a madman' and Steven Gerrard 'dancing on a bar topless' during nights out up north.

The 34-year-old, now playing in Turkey, spent six-and-a-half years in England, with nearly four of those in the North-West at the Latics.

And he revealed during an Instagram live on Wednesday that he regularly saw the two former England captains enjoying themselves to the fullest.

'If people knew how many times I bumped into Rooney in Manchester drinking like a madman or the number of times I saw Gerrard on a bar dancing shirtless...

'They are human beings, http://www.healthtimescanada.com/wiki/index.php/User:TamiSoutter there is nothing wrong with it.

I can count with one hand the number of footballers who don't drink. All of them, all of us, go out and drink.

'I have always said it. I enjoy drinking and dancing. I love salsa dancing. There is nothing wrong with it. I know we are footballers, but we are human beings too.' 

Playing for Wigan, its not surprising Rodallega would have frequented similar spots to fellow Premier League stars Rooney and Gerrard.

The town is situated right in-between Manchester and Liverpool, making the two cities his natural options for a night out. 

It is no secret that Rooney enjoyed a few drinks, the United legend having been spotted on nights out throughout his career.

Gerrard, too, has spoken of how enjoyed a beer or two.  

Rodallega scored 24 goals in 117 games for Wigan before joining Fulham, where he managed 19 in 84.
