Sir Alex Ferguson has rejected fears that Wayne Rooney may be distracted from Manchester United's Champions League mission by UEFA's disciplinary hearing into his three-match international suspension later this week.

Rooney will learn on Thursday whether his appeal against the suspension handed down for his dismissal in England's Euro 2012 qualifier against Montenegro in October has been successful, with the Football Association hopeful the punishment will be reduced.

But with United still requiring a point from their final game against Basle to reach the Champions League's last 16, and both Dimitar Berbatov and Javier Hernandez ruled out by injury, Ferguson expects Rooney to focus on club matters, saying: "He has a game tomorrow. An important game."
