Upbeat Rooney back in Man Utd training this morning

Wayne Rooney was back in training with Manchester United this morning.

Rooney was surprisingly omitted from Sir Alex Ferguson's squad at Everton on Saturday with the United manager claiming he did not want to subject his star striker to intense personal abuse.

Rooney seemed happy enough this morning, laughing and joking with his team-mates at the start of United's final training session prior to their meeting with Rangers, Ferguson's old club.

And it would be a major shock if Rooney did not face Walter Smith's men as United look to make a positive start to their European campaign and erase the memory of Saturday's draw at Everton when they conceded twice in stoppage time.
