Wayne Rooney returns to Manchester United's starting lineup for Wednesday's Champions League match against Rangers, with his club aiming to clinch the top spot in the group and a place in the next round.

Rangers held United to a 0-0 draw at Old Trafford in September when Rooney was in a post World Cup-slump, apparently due to uncertainty over his future and a niggling ankle problem.

Both issues seem to have been resolved with Rooney signing a new five-year contract during a five-week break for treatment, leaving United with few concerns as it pursues the win that could guarantee first place and a favorable draw in the next round.

Midfielder Park Ji-sung says "we're not going there to get a point. We want to get three."
