Manchester United manager Sir Alex Ferguson has said that Wayne Rooney is likely to miss the next four weeks with a gashed leg.

The 26-year-old forward was stretched off in the last minute of the Red Devils' 3-2 win over Fulham after being caught by the boot of Hugo Rodallega.

"It's a very bad gash," said Ferguson. "He's been whisked off to hospital and I think he'll be out for four weeks."

United visit St Mary's to play Southampton a week tomorrow.
