The 31-year-old is back at Goodison, insisting the Blues are now a different beast.
Rooney said: “With the ability that Ross has, we all want him to be a part of what we’re trying to achieve at Everton. But the decision about his future is down to him and I’m sure he’ll speak to the manager and do what’s right.
“Everton have always had ambition, but I feel the club didn’t really push on with that ambition.
“But now they are starting to act on that ambition and as a fan it’s great to see. To come back here and try to help with that was perfect for me.
“I’ll be trying to help the young lads to get the best out of them.”
