No action against Rooney

6:24 am on 16 December 2008

The Manchester United forward Wayne Rooney will not face disciplinary action over an alleged "stamping" in last week's European Champions League match against Danish side Aalborg.

Rooney tangled with Kasper Risgard and his foot made contact with the Aalborg player's chest during the game at Old Trafford, which ended in a 2-all draw.

No action was taken by the referee but the England forward, who was sent off for stamping on Ricardo Carvalho during a World Cup quarter-final against Portugal in 2006, faced a potential suspension on the strength of video evidence.

However UEFA have taken no action after an investigation.

Rooney is currently in Japan for the FIFA Club World Cup which United are competing in as European champions.
