Rooney avoids further action

24 Mar 2009 - 07:18:18

Manchester United striker Wayne Rooney will not face any further disciplinary action following his red card at Fulham on Saturday.

Rooney was sent off for two bookable offences in the 2-0 defeat at Craven Cottage and will now serve an automatic one-match ban.

It had been suggested that the Football Association could take further action as Rooney exchanged words with referee Phil Dowd after being shown the red card before lashing out at the corner flag as he left the field of play.

However, the FA has confirmed it will write to Rooney to 'remind him of his responsibilities' but will take no further action.

"We have clarified with Phil Dowd that there was no abuse from the player after he was dismissed," said an FA spokesperson.

"In relation to the incident when he punched the corner flag, the referee did not see that and we have written to Wayne Rooney reminding him of his responsibilities."

Rooney will now be suspended for Aston Villa's Premier League visit to Old Trafford on April 5.
