Rooney Axed Over Night Out

Wayne Rooney was a notable absence from Man United’s shock 3-2 loss with Blackburn Rovers on Saturday and despite Ferguson stating that he was struggling with an injury, rumours have been circulated that the player was axed following allegations that he, Johnny Evans and Darron Gibson went out following the 5-0 win against Wigan on boxing day.

Apparently the 3 went out for a quiet family meal but still broke club discipline rules, and so both Rooney and Gibson sat out the loss against the relegation sufferers on Sir Alex’s 70th birthday. With Chelsea also losing, and Spurs drawing, it remains to be seen quite how much damage will be done; that is until Man City take on Sunderland on New Years Day afternoon.
