FA won't punish Rooney for wedding visit

Press AssociationPress Association 26/11/2016

Wayne Rooney is not expected to face any disciplinary action from the Football Association over his late night during the last international break.

Rooney was pictured at The Grove, where the team were based between games against Scotland and Spain, mingling with fellow guests at a wedding following a day off.

Newspaper reports suggest the England captain was drunk at the reception with chief executive Martin Glenn promising an investigation into the conduct of all players and staff during their free time.

It is understood that the player's representatives have been in contact with the FA and are assured no disciplinary action will be taken against him.

It is further understood that any suggestions of Gareth Southgate, then interim manager and soon-to-be permanent boss, asking the player to go to bed and being ignored are inaccurate.

Rooney denies entering the wedding reception but was happy to pose for pictures with guests in communal areas of the hotel.

While new guidelines around player down-time are sure to follow when England next link-up in March, FA management are not actively reviewing the behaviour of any players at present.
