Last updated : 13 October 2011 By Utd Mad Ed

The Manchester United forward found himself with a red card after kicking out at Montenegrin Miodrag Dzudovic.

Even though it was Rooney’s first sending off in six years in UEFA competition, the powers that be decided that the incident was serious enough to warrant a three match ban.

A UEFA statement said: "The UEFA Control and Disciplinary Body has today handed down a three-match suspension to England forward Wayne Rooney following his dismissal during the UEFA EURO 2012 qualifier in Montenegro last Friday, 7 October.”
