United down Dons

Published Add your comment

A first-half penalty from Michael Carrick and a Wayne Rooney header after the break gave Manchester United a comfortable 2-0 win over Aberdeen in their challenge match at Pittodrie.

A minute before half-time Rooney was felled by Dons keeper Jamie Langfield inside the box, allowing the former Tottenham midfielder to slot home his first spot-kick since the Champions League final penalty shoot-out win over Chelsea in Moscow.

Rooney headed home number two from Darren Fletcher´s cross in the 69th minute before going off to a standing ovation minutes later.
