Rooney is a silly boy: Redknapp
Madrid: Tottenham Hotspur manager Harry Redknapp has criticised Wayne Rooney after the Manchester United striker was charged with using foul language while celebrating a goal in Saturday`s 4-2 win at West Ham United.
The England international faces a two-match ban if he accepts the charge, which would rule him out of United`s league match against Fulham and the FA Cup semi-final against Manchester City at Wembley.
"Why is he so angry?" Redknapp asked at a news conference in Madrid on Monday ahead of Tottenham`s Champions League match against Real.
"I don`t remember Bobby Charlton doing it when he scored," he added, referring to the former United and England midfielder, a World Cup winner in 1966.
"Why do they have to be so angry with the world these young footballers earning hundreds of thousands pounds a week?"
"I respect him a great deal as a player but he`s a silly boy and he shouldn`t have done it."
Rooney apologised for his outburst soon after the match, saying he swore in the heat of the moment after completing a 14-minute hat-trick.
