Sir Alex Ferguson has left out most of his big names from Manchester United's squad for Tuesday's Champions League encounter with Galatasaray.

Wayne Rooney was among those to miss out, even though he was able to return to training on Monday morning after sitting out the weekend defeat at Norwich with tonsillitis.

With qualification already secured, Ferguson also left out Rio Ferdinand, skipper Patrice Evra and top scorer Robin van Persie.
