Rooney says sorry, but not to Emlyn's family.
But he has not said sorry for ripping off the black arm band he was wearing in remembrance of Emlyn Hughes.
The 19-year-old former Everton striker threw down the arm band in disgust after he was substituted during England's match against Spain on Wednesday.
But although Rooney has apologised to his England team-mates for his petulance on the field, he has still failed to publicly express any regret over the arm band incident.
Millions watched as Rooney flung the arm band to the floor and refused to shake substitute Alan Smith's hand.
Players wore the arm bands as a tribute to Hughes, whose funeral took place on Wednesday.
Hughes, 57, died last week after suffering from a brain tumour. His funeral was held in Sheffield cathedral and a host of ex-Liverpool bosses attended.
Rooney's tantrum is said to have left team-mates, including captain David Beckham, unimpressed.
