He defiantly declared that he has nothing to reproach himself about, even though Roy Hodgson himself admitted that Rooney had under-performed in the penalty shoot-out defeat by Italy in the quarter-finals.
“I regret what I did in Montenegro,” said Rooney. “I shouldn’t have done it and I took the punishment I was given.
“I had no problem with the two-game ban I got and I will learn from it.
“I am sure everyone was keeping a close eye on me during the two games I did play and they all saw that I had no problem with my discipline.
“I showed last season that there’s nothing for me to worry about.
“I didn’t get a single booking for United in the Premier League, so it’s not something that I am concerned about.”
