More Scans For Rio

Last updated : 11 January 2009 By Sam
The United centre-back had been expected to return to the squad for the game against Chelsea but was ommitted having woken up on Sunday morning with spasms to his back.

"He's trained all week and had no issues at all," United manager Sir Alex Ferguson told Sky Sports.

"This morning he woke up with another spasm. So it's a big, big problem for us.

"This has been going on for a while now. So we're sending him to a specialist tomorrow (Monday) to do another scan.

"We're going to have to try and get to the bottom of it because it's a disappointment, particularly in him missing such a big game."
