Boss explains Rooney omission

"He's definitely not for sale," Gill responded. "He didn't start in one game on Saturday for various reasons. Sir Alex picks the team and that's it. Whenever he's not played, people try to drum up stories.

"I can categorically say there has been no discussion whatsoever. He's on a long-term contract with us. He's very integral to our team going forward. He's a great player, got a bad injury but will come back without a shadow of a doubt. He was angry about the story, quite rightly."
