After reviewing video evidence of the first half clash, The FA charged Rooney with violent conduct, while Ben Haim was charged with improper conduct for his reaction to the shove.
Rather than contest the charge, Rooney has taken his punishment on the chin and admitted the rap for violent conduct.
He will now miss The Red Devils' next three games, starting with the Premiership trip to Middlesbrough on New Year's Day.
"The violent conduct charge bemuses me because every man and his dog would agree it was not violent conduct," complained Ferguson.
"If it is violent conduct, why are they charging Ben Haim? I can't understand it.
"He is being charged so they, therefore, believe he is guilty of diving and bringing the game into disrepute.
"It was no more than a push in the face; there was no swing of the arm or anything like that.
"The system is completely flawed. The problem for us now is we can't really appeal because we are not allowed to be represented. It is a closed section.
"So, therefore, they are telling you: 'Don't bother appealing, you are not going to win anyway'. As we are approaching 2005, that seems to be unfair and immoral."
