Coleen Rooney, her family and friends were seen at Old Trafford Sunday morning. This was her first appearance since Wagatha Christie triumph over Rebekah Vardy.
As the 36-year old WAG strolled along with her boys, she seemed to be deep in thought. She was wearing a casual green shirt with blue jeans, before the star smiled and laughed with someone in the crowd.
As Rayo Vallecano took on the Red Devils, she carried all her necessities in her black bag and covered her eyes with a pair of large black sunglasses.
Happy: Coleen Rooney, victorious in her case against Becky Vardy was seen smiling at Old Trafford fans on Sunday.
Her outing comes as she and Rebekah are set for one last dramatic High Court showdown over who will foot the multi-million-pound bill for their costly ‘Wagatha Christie’ libel battle.
Sources close to Coleen – who won the case last week – told The Mail on Sunday she will fight to make sure Rebekah pays the full amount, estimated to be up to £3million.
The winning party usually has to cover around 30% of the cost.
But Coleen’s team claim the judge’s damning judgment that Becky did sell stories about her to The Sun newspaper means it is ‘inconceivable’ that she won’t be made to pay the full amount.

Coleen looked contemplative as she walked with her boys, looking relaxed in a blue shirt and jeans.

On Friday, Mrs Justice Steyn decided that Becky (40) and Caroline Watt, her agent, had leaked information about Coleen, the wife of Wayne, ex-England skipper.
Rebekah sued her former friend for libel over a now-famous social media post in which Coleen described setting up a ‘sting operation’ by posting fake stories to selected followers on her private Instagram account to uncover who was leaking stories about her to The Sun.
The ‘big reveal’ post in October 2019 ended: ‘It’s… Rebekah Vardy’s account.’

After Rebekah brought legal action, Coleen, 36, offered her a ‘drop hands’ offer, which meant they would both walk away, paying their own costs. Coleen suggested that they also donate to charity.
Rebekah, however, declined to pay and was sentenced to a lengthy High Court trial. Coleen is now suing her opponent for not paying up after she won.
A source close to Coleen said: ‘Coleen didn’t want this to happen. She knew the money would be better spent on so many other things but she won’t be letting Rebekah get away with not paying the full costs.

‘She tried to settle this early on but Rebekah wouldn’t have it. And if you look at the outlining of the judgment, it is inconceivable that a judge wouldn’t agree she will pay them in full. Let’s not forget, this action was brought by Rebekah and she lost spectacularly.’
During a preliminary hearing in March last year, the costs were estimated at £1.3million.
Now, after the case’s two-week High Court hearing, reports have claimed the total could be £3million.
Rebekah’s barrister, Hugh Tomlinson QC, reportedly charges £10,000 a day, while his opposite number, David Sherborne, charges about £8,000.
Rumours abound that Rebekah’s husband Jamie, a Leicester City striker, might have to sell their Portuguese villa in order to cover the legal costs.
