Rooney pleased with skipper role

Rooney said: “We’re really pleased, we got three goals and three points and it was an important win.

“We had a lot of chances but at the end of the day we’re just happy to get three points.

“Obviously there were a few injuries and Giggsy was ill so just before we went out I got the armband. I was pleased with that but it wasn’t the main issue of the night.

“My form is getting better, I was pleased with how I played against Wigan and again in this game. I think I’m more or less back to my best and my performances are okay.”
