Rooney was not punished by the referee for his tackle on Risgard

Uefa says it will not punish Manchester United striker Wayne Rooney over his clash with Aalborg's Kasper Risgard.

The Danish defender claimed the England international stamped on him during the 2-2 Champions League draw at Old Trafford on 10 December.

Uefa assessed the incident after it was missed by referee Laurent Duhamel but decided no action was required.

Rooney, 23, faced a three-match ban had he been found guilty by European football's governing body.
