Wayne Rooney has defended his “bad tackle” on Jordon Mutch during Manchester United’s 2-2 draw with Cardiff City on Sunday.

The England international escaped with a caution after appearing to lash out at the Cardiff City midfielder in the first half.

Just minutes later, the 28-year-old Red Devils forward scored the opening goal at the Cardiff City Stadium.

Following the draw, Rooney hit out at Sky Sports’ Martin Tyler and Graeme Souness after the duo suggested that he should been sent off for the incident.

“Just watched game back. I agree mine was a bad tackle and referee dealt with it. And Martin Tyler didn’t shut up about it all game,” Rooney posted on his Twitter account.

“Then someone slaps someone in face and he doesn’t speak a word about it. I like Martin but that’s poor from him.

“Sourness; the rules are you kick out you should be off. Souness; Medel gives left hook he’s done his job. Haha brilliant.”

Clarifying “Sourness” was a pun at the former Liverpool midfielder’s expense, Rooney added: “Sourness was sarcastic for everyone biting.”
