UEFA Champions League: Fergie Praises Rooney

Sir Alex Ferguson paid a special tribute to Wayne Rooney for his “courage” in taking the penalty that helped Manchester United to a 1-0 win over Rangers yesterday.
The result secured United’s berth in the knockout stages of the UEFA Champions League with one game remaining.
“It took a lot of courage to take the penalty kick,” the United boss said. “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.”
The only goal of the game came in the final five minutes when a high challenge by Rangers midfielder Steve Naismith on Fabio da Silva was perceived as illegal by Swiss referee Massimo Busacca, who pointed to the spot.
