Rooney was careless - Ferguson
Sir Alex Ferguson gave Wayne Rooney a ticking off despite his two-goal contribution to United's 4-0 win over Aston Villa on Sunday.
Rooney converted the early penalty questionably gained by Ashley Young and doubled his tally 17 minutes before the end. It took him to 31 for the season but Rooney did not looked particularly impressed when he was replaced immediately by Dimitar Berbatov. However, Ferguson believed the performance had not been one of Rooney's best and that he had been sucked into a rather lethargic display. "He was careless," said the United boss. "Wayne has to play on the edge of a game, when it is really close and competitive. "When the game gets to that casual bit, he is worse than the rest of them. "He gets really casual about it. It is better when he is on the edge. Then he is a marvellous player."
