Wayne Rooney has provided Manchester United with a timely Champions League boost by taking part in training ahead of tomorrow's encounter with AC Milan

Manager Sir Alex Ferguson said after Saturday's victory over Wolves, which the striker missed, that Rooney was "a big doubt" for tomorrow's game after aggravating a knee injury on England duty last week.



However, Rooney's presence at Carrington this morning suggests United's top scorer will be involved at Old Trafford as Ferguson's side attempt to reach the last eight of this season's competition at the expense of David Beckham and his team-mates.
