No Internal Disciplinary Action Against Rooney Boots Throw


Manchester United striker Rooney flew into a rage after being substituted along with Michael Carrick to make way for Michael Owen and Dimitar Berbatov.

But manager Alex Ferguson has ignored his antics as he prepares his side for Sunday’s Manchester derby at Old Trafford.

Rooney was hauled off in the 63rd minute of United’s 1-0 win over Besiktas in the Champions League on Tuesday night.

He trudged off and gave Owen a weak handshake before ignoring the manager and trading verbals with the Besiktas fans who were taunting him.

He then took one boot off and flung it to the ground before gesticulating towards Ferguson.

But Fergie shook off the incident as United ground out a valuable victory.

He insisted: “Wayne is never pleased at coming off.

“He has that kind of energy where he wants to play in every game.”

Fergie said he had not seen Rooney’s spat with the fans.
