What muscles are used in hip medial rotation?

Knee Rotation:- as extension progresses, shorter, more highly curved lateral condyle exhausts its articular surface andis checked by ACL, whereas larger and less curved medial condyle continues its forwardroll & skids backward, assisted by tightening of PCL;- result is a medial rotation of femur (external tibial rotation) that tightens collateral ligaments, & joint is "screwed home",to use mechanical phraseology;- flexion of extended knee is preceded by lateral rotation of femur (or medial rotation of tibia), usually produced by popliteus;- this rotation relaxes the tension of the collateral ligaments sufficiently to permit flexion;
