Fergie delighted with Rooney

Ferguson said: “They were two marvellous finishes from Rooney. The first came from a run across the defender. He has caught him on the hop, off-guard, and it was a great strike.

“The second was terrific. Taking that kind of finish, when you are under pressure and you need to win, it makes it more special.

“They proved it was going to be difficult, but the important thing is we kept our patience, kept probing, and made some good chances.”
