Man Utd boss Ferguson gave Rooney 5-star hairdryer

Manchester United boss Sir Alex Ferguson steamed into Wayne Rooney before dropping him for the draw at Everton, it has been revealed. The Sun says the furious Old Trafford chief has warned his biggest star: Never step out of line again.

Fergie cracked down following a week of lurid revelations about the England striker's antics with a £1,200-a-night prostitute.

He insisted he left Rooney out of Saturday's return to his former club to save him from abuse by Everton fans.

But privately the fuming Scot opted to dump the errant ace as a punishment designed to ram home his point.

Ferguson was angry Rooney had put himself in such a position and has made it clear there must be no repeats.
