Manchester United boss Sir Alex Ferguson has branded claims that he had a row with striker Wayne Rooney as 'absolute nonsense'.

Former Liverpool defender Mark Lawrenson suggested Ferguson had a bust-up with Rooney following last month's 4-1 home defeat to title rivals Liverpool .

The England international was then handed a second yellow card in United's 2-0 loss at Fulham after he had been left out of the starting XI.

Lawrenson said: "Everybody knows he had a massive row with Fergie after the Liverpool game and was then left out against Fulham.

"It is an ongoing problem, but if anyone can deal with it, it is Sir Alex."

Ferguson, though, has dismissed the suggestions outright, with the Scot keen to focus his side on their vital Premier League clash with Aston Villa - a game that can be seen live on Sky Sports 1 & HD1.

The Red Devils chief said: "I was made aware of it. Absolute nonsense.

"I don't know where that came from, but the revealing part of it is 'everybody knows', but I didn't know and I was in there.

"These people self-promote but who the hell's bothered about it?

"Nobody followed it up which tells you everything because if there was any truth you'd have found out."
