Rooney misses Man United training

MANCHESTER - Manchester United striker Wayne Rooney missed training on Tuesday but should be fit for their Champions League semi-final second leg against Schalke 04, manager Sir Alex Ferguson said.

"He didn't train this morning, he has a tight hamstring. He'll be alright tomorrow," Ferguson told a news conference on the eve of Wednesday's match at Old Trafford where United start with a 2-0 advantage from last week's first leg in Germany.
