Everton boss David Moyes has criticised the appeals procedure he has had to go through with the Football Association.

Wayne Rooney this week had his three-match ban for being sent off for England in Montenegro reduced to two games by a UEFA appeals panel. The decision, which means Manchester United forward Rooney will be able to play in England's final Euro 2012 group game, is good news as far as Moyes is concerned and he is pleased for the former Toffees player.

"They had the opportunity to appeal and they were right to do so. But you should see us when we try to appeal - it's absolute murder. That disciplinary committee - trying to get anything done, or get it through there is terrible," said Moyes, speaking ahead of Saturday's Barclays Premier League trip to Arsenal.
