Rooney back in training

Wayne Rooney was back in training with Manchester United on Monday as his club looked to draw a line under his recent disciplinary issue with Sir Alex Ferguson.

It is understood that Ferguson fined Rooney and midfielder Darron Gibson, before forcing the pair to train on their day off last week after the pair enjoyed an evening out on Boxing Day.

Neither the club nor the player's representative wished to elaborate on the matter, nor even to confirm Rooney was axed from Saturday's 3-2 shock defeat to Blackburn as part of his punishment.

And now it has been dealt with, it seems the matter is now closed, or at least all parties have no wish to fuel it, realising United need to regain their focus after being granted a Premier League reprieve thanks to Sunderland's late win over leaders Manchester City, who remain ahead only on goal difference.
