The United striker swore into a pitch side camera after scoring a hat-trick at Upton Park. Whilst on his suspension, he will be overlooking Saturday’s home match with Fulham from the sidelines as well as missing the FA Cup semi-final against rival, Manchester City at Wembley on 16th April.
Rooney’s victory made Manchester United gain three points, making the Red Devils seven points clear at the top of the Premier League however, after his bad decision he quickly apologised in an attempt to wash away his remorse. The professional star captured his three goals within 14 minutes, bringing the team back up from a 2-0 down.
The 25 year old said the following in a statement released by United: ”I want to apologise for any offence that may have been caused by my goal celebration, especially any parents or children that were watching. Emotions were running high, and on reflection my heat of the moment reaction was inappropriate. It was not aimed at anyone in particular.”
Football Association deputy chief, John Bramhall outlined Rooney’s behavior as ”disappointing” but, he did take into account that the striker made a swift apology.
