Rooney appeals ban

Wayne Rooney has admitted an FA charge of using abusive language but has lodged a claim against the severity of his two-match suspension.

The Football Association confirmed that they had received a submission from Manchester United and the case will be heard on Wednesday afternoon.

If Rooney's claim fails he runs the risk of having a suspension that currently includes Saturday's Premier League encounter with Fulham and the following week's FA Cup semi-final with Manchester City at Wembley extended.

Speaking ahead of Wednesday night's Champions League quarter-final with Chelsea, Sir Alex Ferguson made it clear he did not want to discuss the matter.

"I have nothing to say. I am not going to discuss it at all," he said.

"We have submitted our case."
