Rooney reveals goal relief

Manchester United (8/1 to win 2010-11 Champions League) striker Wayne Rooney has admitted he was relieved to score the winning goal during his side’s Champions League clash with Rangers.

The England forward stepped up in the 87th minute to slot home a penalty, after Scotland international Steven Naismith was adjudged to have fouled Fabio Da Silva in the box.

Rooney (25/1 Top Premier League goalscorer) revealed that he was delighted to get the goal having gone through a dry spell in front of goal before suffering an ankle injury.

He said: “There were not many nerves really. I knew what I was doing and where I was going. I can only do that. If the keeper guesses the right way and saves it, so be it. Thankfully it went in.

“Hopefully I can go on a goal-scoring run now but really I am just delighted to be back playing again.”

United’s (9/4 to win 2010-11 Premier League) win at Ibrox has put them through to the knockout stages of the Champions League, whilst Rangers now go into the Europa League.
