The FA upheld Rooneyâ€™s two-match suspension for swearing after United appealed against the severity of the ban, arguing the punishment did not fit the crime.
Giggs said everyone at United was stunned by the FAâ€™s decision to punish Rooney for his foul-mouthed outburst and suggested he had been singled out simply because of his profile.
â€śIâ€™m not surprised [by the ban] because of the profile Wayne has got,â€ť said Giggs. â€śBut a two-match ban? Yeah, Iâ€™m surprised about that.
â€śIt had just never been done before [a player being charged for swearing]. There was no precedent for it and thatâ€™s why we were bamboozled by it.
â€śBut itâ€™s one of those things, youâ€™ve just got to get on with it. Obviously weâ€™ll lose him for two games but heâ€™ll be back against Chelsea next Tuesday.
â€śWe can moan about it, but weâ€™ve got too many games coming up to dwell on it.â€ť
Asked if such episodes, like Sir Alex Fergusonâ€™s five-match touchline ban, served to unify Unitedâ€™s squad and increase their desire, Giggs said: â€śMaybe it does. But a lot more is made of it away from the club.
â€śWeâ€™re in the changing-room as players and we just want to concentrate on football.
â€śThatâ€™s where experience of the staff and the older players, and the manager of course, comes in.â€ť
