Wayne Rooney has taken his last penalty for Man Utd: Roy Keane

London: West Ham manager Roy Keane has claimed that Wayne Rooney will never take another penalty for Manchester United because Sir Alex Ferguson will be "fuming" about his latest miss.

Rooney blazed a spot-kick over the bar in Wednesday`s FA Cup win over West Ham, and has missed five of his nine penalties for the club over the last year.

The striker has staggeringly fluffed 10 out of 27 spot-kicks for United since moving to Old Trafford in 2004.

Fergie`s reaction to Rooney`s miss during United`s narrow 1-0 FA Cup win on Wednesday said it all as he turned his head away in disgust.

Keane claims his former team-mate has shown he is not up to taking penalties and expects Ferguson to hand the spot-kick duties to fellow hitman Robin van Persie.

While Keane was typically brutal in his criticism of Rooney, team-mate Ryan Giggs was more sympathetic.

Giggs said he does not see it as a major problem.
