London: Former England assistant coach Gary Neville claims the Football Association (FA) let down Wayne Rooney with their handling of the controversy over his late-night behaviour at the national team's hotel.

England captain Rooney was pictured looking bleary-eyed and mingling with guests from a wedding reception at the England team hotel after their World Cup qualifier against Scotland last month.

Manchester United forward Rooney apologised to England manager Gareth Southgate and to the FA, but Neville, a former teammate of the star with club and country, believes the matter should have been dealt with more carefully.
