Rooney vows not to repeat boxing celebration

Wayne Rooney says he will not perform his boxing celebration again after revealing that it was copied by his son Kai at school.

Prior to Manchester United's win over Tottenham earlier this month, footage emerged of Rooney being knocked to the floor by Stoke City defender Phil Bardsley as the pair sparred with boxing gloves on in the striker's kitchen.

Rooney subsequently celebrated his goal against Spurs by punching the air before falling to the floor and, while he insists he had no reason to apologise for the incident, he says he will not be repeating the feat in future.

The story is too old to be commented.
