Wayne Rooney has been passed fit for Manchester United's home Barclays Premier League game with QPR following a bout of tonsillitis.

The England striker sat out last weekend's defeat at Norwich due to the problem and was rested for the Champions League tie away to Galatasaray but Sir Alex Ferguson confirmed he was fit to return at his regular press conference on Friday morning.

The Scot also said Chris Smalling was fit for action following a shoulder problem, and that defender Jonny Evans was training again but would not feature against QPR.
