Wayne Rooney has been ruled out of Manchester United’s clash with Newcastle on Saturday with a toe injury and could also miss next week’s crunch Champions League clash against Bayern Munich.

Manager David Moyes confirmed that the England international had suffered the problem during the 1-1 draw against the Bundesliga side in the first leg of their Champions League quarter-final in midweek.

We’ll get him treatment all over the weekend and see if we can speed it up

United travel to St James’ Park on Saturday afternoon before heading to Munich for the return leg of the last-eight clash on Wednesday night.

“Wayne’s got a badly bruised toe,” Moyes told MUTV. “He picked it up in the game the other night.

“Whether we were going to play him or rest him, it doesn’t matter. He’s got a terrible toe and not only will it be a problem for this game, it could be a problem for the Munich game as well on Wednesday.

“So we need to monitor it. We’ll get him treatment all over the weekend and see if we can speed it up.”
