Rooney lashes out over 'bad tackle'

Manchester United striker Wayne Rooney has accepted he made a "bad tackle" on Cardiff's Jordon Mutch in Sunday's 2-2 Premier League draw, yet he insisted referee Neil Swarbrick was right to only show him a yellow card.

Many observers believed Rooney was fortunate to remain on the pitch after his crunching challenge on Mutch, but he took to Twitter to blast commentator Martin Tyler, claiming he received the correct punishment. Rooney went on to score United's opening goal after staying on the pitch.

United manager David Moyes was adamant that his No.10 did not deserve to be dismissed for his clash with Mutch, as he claimed striker did not "lash out" at his opponent.

"There was a bit of a tussle but I don't think it deserved any more than a yellow card," stated Moyes. "I think Mutch runs across his path and runs down the line of the ball and I think Wayne's half in motion, I don't think it is any more than a booking that's for sure."

Cardiff boss Malkay Mackay was also eager to play down the incident, but he admitted some officials would have given Rooney his marching orders.

"I have looked at it [the Rooney incident] again and some referees might send him off, but I thought overall Neil Swarbrick had a good game and I think he handled it well," said Mackay.

"I think it was two teams who were tough and committed and there were some tasty challenges throughout the whole game, but I think his handling of the game was reasonably good."
