Arguing with Coleen Rooney like ‘arguing with a pigeon’ 

Rebekah Vardy has said arguing with Coleen Rooney would be like “arguing with a pigeon” as the fallout from their highly public dispute continues.

Rooney, the wife of former England football captain Wayne, made headlines around the world after alleging she had turned detective to prove Vardy’s Instagram account was the source of leaked stories about her private life.

Vardy, the wife of Leicester City striker Jamie, furiously denies any wrongdoing and said she has hired a cyber security expert to clear her name.

Speaking to the Daily Mail, Vardy, 37, revealed what was said in a phone call between the two women after Rooney tweeted her allegations.

“I said to her: ‘Coleen, what on earth have you done?’,” Vardy said.

“It was not an easy phone call. She said to me: ‘I’m not pointing the finger’ and I said: ‘You have just annihilated me in public and hung me out to dry. The whole world hates me!’.

“I thought she was my friend but she completely annihilated me. She said: ‘You know, I always really liked you, which makes it harder.”‘
