Man Utd striker Rooney delighted with Palace screamer

Manchester United striker Wayne Rooney was delighted with this goal in victory over Crystal Palace.

Rooney's outstanding strike was a first of 2014 for the fit-again striker and ensures he heads into Tuesday's Champions League tie at Olympiacos in confident mood.

"Sometimes they can be difficult coming across your body," he explained. "Thankfully, I got a nice connection on it. It went in so obviously I'm delighted.

"Tuesday is a massive game for us. We want to be going into the quarter-finals of the Champions League. It'll be tough but we'll get the Palace match out of our system, prepare well and we'll be ready."
