Rangers whilst still negative weren’t as bad as they were at Old Trafford and actually had some chances this time with Kenny Miller going close in the first half.
After some dreary performances we looked a lot better tonight with some great football being played including a great link up between Berbatov, Rooney and Carrick.
Rangers will have themselves to blame for their defeat with Steven Naismith trying to decapitate the brilliant Fabio (he actually complained about his booking despite nearly kicking Fabio’s head off!) and Rooney’s penalty was brilliant to seal the 3 points. Rooney for what it’s worth looked a lot better than we’ve seen him this season as did Berbatov. Smalling again was solid at the back and Fabio ran the left wing troubling Rangers when he got forward and Carrick got forward (and passed the ball forward too which almost caused me to pass out!).
We will be playing Valencia at Old Trafford to see who qualifies as group leaders.
