What excuse, or explanation, did Macbeth give for killing the guards (grooms)? What was his real reason?

Macbeth says he was so angry about the murder that he killed the guards when he saw them with the bloody knives. Macbeth claims he loved the king so much that he could not withhold his rage. In reality, Macbeth just does not want the guards to talk or give their side of the story.
