Man Utd boss Ferguson insists Rooney won't make Liverpool trip

Manchester United boss Sir Alex Ferguson insists Wayne Rooney won't be fit for their trip to Liverpool.

United will again be without Rooney for that game, as the striker remains troubled by his gashed thigh despite claims he had returned to full training and might even have been involved against Galatasaray.

"I don't where that story came from," said Ferguson. "He was never close."

Asked whether the weekend fixture would also be too soon for the England striker, United's long-serving manager simply replied: "Yes."
