Former United captain Roy Keane labelled the snub as "the final nail in the coffin" for Rooney's career at the club and, speaking to the Alan Brazil Sports Breakfast, Wilkins believes the England global deserves far more respect.

The Red Devils beat their Belgian opponents 2-1 at Old Trafford, 3-2 aggregate, to progress to the last four of the competition, with 19-year-old forward Marcus Rashford scoring the victor in extra-time.

After leading scorer Zlatan Ibrahimovic limped off with what may be a season-ending injury shortly before the game moved into extra-time, Mourinho turned to Anthony Martial to fill the void, as he move Marcus Rashford into a central striking role.

In the aftermath of United's progression to the semi-finals of the European competition, Wilkins focused on the things Rooney had given during his long career in English football and the need for United to respect their No 10 more.

Manchester United captain Wayne Rooney is a sacrificial lamb, according to Ray Wilkins.

'He's 31 years of age. He doesn't go charging all over the field and helping his teammates out.

Keane added that Rooney will still see some action in the remainder of the season but insisted he must be angry at not playing since the 0-0 draw with West Brom on April 1.

Rooney was also completely omitted from the United squad for the recent emphatic victory over another of Wilkins' former teams, Chelsea, though a muscular injury was cited as the reason why.
