Manchester United manager Sir Alex Ferguson has confirmed that the club has rejected a transfer request from Wayne Rooney.
The striker was left out of the squad on Sunday as United beat Swansea City 2-1 in Ferguson's final game in charge at Old Trafford before his retirement.
The Scot told BBC Sport: "We have refused [the transfer request]. I think he should go away and think about it again.
"He wasn't happy about being brought off in games this season. Wayne Rooney in top form wouldn't be taken off."
Rooney previously asked to leave the club in 2010 before changing his mind and signing a new five-year contract.
