Wayne Rooney will be out for up to three weeks with an ankle injury, Manchester United manager Sir Alex Ferguson has confirmed.

The England international limped out of United's 2-2 draw with Bolton in the 61st minute on Sunday and had an ice-pack strapped to his ankle on the bench.

He had already been ruled out of the Red Devils' UEFA Champions League clash with Valencia on Wednesday night and now Ferguson has confirmed an extended spell on the sidelines.

The United boss said: "It will be two to three weeks. But it depends because Wayne has done quite well with his recovery from injury in the past."

If he is out for three weeks, the striker will miss the clashes with Sunderland and West Brom in the Premier League, as well as England's home date with Montenegro on 12th October.

Meanwhile, Ferguson also confirmed that midfielder Paul Scholes will be sidelined for 10 days with a calf problem.

masterstroke by fergie.......get him out the firing line!! so he can sort his head out as he''s looking like a shadow of his formerself A nd if he his carrying a slight knock then that gives him time to sort that too! It''''ll benefit both United and england in the long run!!

Limped off against Bolton? He ran off! Though I doubt it''s nothing to do with his off field problems, honest.

Suprise suprise, it looks like wayne has been given time to reflect on his personal wrongdoings, nothing to do with an injury it was feigned, fergie always does it. Suprised aswell that fergie is forcing one of his players out of an international match AGAIN!!!!!

Absolute rubbish from fergie. he''s just dropping him for a few weeks as his form has dropped lately and hasnt been helped by all the media hype.
