Roo escapes extra ban

NewsWayne Rooney has escaped a further ban for his reaction to being sent off with the F.A. confirming that refree Phil Dowd was not on the back end of any expletives from the striker.

Rooney was sent off for two bookable offences as United slipped to their second consecutive Premier League defeat. The decision not to increase his ban means that he will serve only a one match suspension against Aston Villa at Old Trafford.

 An FA spokesman said: "We have clarified with Phil Dowd that there was no abuse from the player after he was dismissed.

"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."
