Manchester United's Wayne Rooney was involved in an incident at a restaurant with Blackburn defender Michael Gray on Saturday, according to his spokesman.

England striker Rooney, 20, was out with fiancee Coleen McLoughlin in Manchester when Gray, 32, is reported to have approached the group.

A spokesman for Rooney claimed that Gray made offensive remarks to female guests of the England international.

"Wayne asked him to go several times. It was a brief incident," he said.

Rooney is suspended from club duty and has only just completed an international ban for his dismissal during England's World Cup quarter-final defeat to Portugal.

He was out at the Panacea Bar and Restaurant in Manchester with his fiancee and some friends.

The spokesman added: "Wayne and Coleen were enjoying a night out with three other couples when Michael came up to their table uninvited."

But he added the incident was now forgotten: "As far as Wayne is concerned, he bears no ill-feeling towards Michael."

A Blackburn spokesman told the BBC: "Michael took steps to make manager Mark Hughes aware of it.

"Michael had the opportunity to make a comment but he doesn't want to get involved in it."

Greater Manchester Police confirmed that no incident was reported.
