'If It's Football, It's Vital'

United - Wayne`s World!

It was never a classic Wayne Rooney performance but didn`t you just know that it`d end with the lad himself covered in glory!

Making his first start since blowing the Old Trafford status quo sky high, Rooney ran the gauntlet of the Ibrox faithful but had the last word with that late, late penalty.

Sir Alex Ferguson, speaking about Wayne having the balls to step up and take the penalty, had this to say,

'It took a lot of courage to take the penalty kick.'

'It was not an easy night, he missed a couple of chances but that's what you expect with the rustiness in his game. We are pleased for him.'


And as for the man himself,

"There were not many nerves really."

'I knew what I was doing and where I was going. I can only do that. If the keeper guesses the right way and saves it, so be it. Thankfully it went in."

'Obviously it is a bit of a relief for me to score. Hopefully I can build on this now.'


And as for the celebrations,

'I wanted to celebrate with our fans."

'It is always nice to beat Rangers away."

'Hopefully I can go on a goalscoring run now but really I am just delighted to be back playing again."

'I felt good. I felt fit throughout the game. I want to build on this performance and this goal.'


Still a way to go before complete redemption is attained but he`s heading in the right direction!

A good penalty though he just needs to regain his clinical finishing and work on his first-touch and he just might start scoring again. Valencia's crosses would also work wonders.

Imagine how ruthless we can become with Valencia whipping in crosses and Hernandez and Rooney lurking in the penalty area.. We sure miss Valencia, hope he will come back the player he was.. Great night for Rooney, his hunger is back, once the rust is gone, he will be on fire again.
