Wayne Rooney will face no disciplinary action for his off-the-ball challenge on Wigan's James McCarthy at the DW Stadium on Saturday.

Television replays seemed to show Rooney clash with McCarthy after the midfielder had appeared set to block the Manchester United striker's run.

At the time referee Mark Clattenburg awarded a free-kick and, after contacting the official, the FA have been told the official feels he administered the appropriate action, which leaves the governing body powerless to launch disciplinary proceedings against the 25-year-old.



Rooney is now likely to line-up against Chelsea at Stamford Bridge tomorrow, and could play a key role for the Red Devils in a string of vital domestic matches at both league and cup level.
