Reports today suggest that Sir Alex Ferguson will not be talking to Sky Sports following comments made about Wayne Rooney on Soccer Saturday. Mike Phelan will presumably take the limelight, as he does on Match of the Day, to answer the questions on our future games shown on Sky Sports.

In a heated studio discussion, it was argued by Phil Thompson and Paul Merson that Wayne Rooney should have been shown a straight red card against Everton for kissing his badge in front of the Goodison Park fans.

Ferguson subbed Rooney off moments later, for fear the referee was going to send our forward off, with the home crowd baying for blood.

Ferguson is angry with the treatment of his player from the media, so in protest, will not be talking to Sky Sports for the forseeable future. This will start tonight, with Sky Sports showing the Celtic vs United game.

No BBC, no newspaper interviews, now no Sky Sports. So, er, who is Ferguson still speaking to?
