Roy Keane got into a tiff with a fan after Manchester United’s defeat at Old Trafford yesterday.

The club was beaten by their rivals Man City in the Premier League playoff on Saturday, so the former footballer was in no mood to be challenged by fans after the match.

The Cork man was busy signing autographs on a kit for one supporter – who was wearing a face mask with the tricolour on it – when another approached him and gave him a hard time for not having time for his fans.

In a clip being shared on social media, the critic seemed to be unhappy with Keane while they were leaving the grounds after watching the Reds suffer a devastating defeat.

Speaking off camera at first, the fan says: “You’re a legend in this club...”

Keane quickly hits back: “And what do you want me to do? Hang around all day and sign autographs? I’ve signed autographs!”

As the fan continues to question the Sky Sports pundit, Keane says: “What did I do? You’ve had a few drinks, they got beaten, and you’re taking it out on me.

“You’ve had a few drinks – what's that got to do with me? You’ve had a few drinks, you can tell. What have you had, two pints?

“I’m trying to get by and be polite,” Keane adds before storming away and leaving Old Trafford while a hoard of fans watch in shock.

In the wake of the video, football fans on Twitter have said that Keane should be treated with more respect at games.

One user wrote: “Roy Keane was ready to fight. I agree with him. You expect him sign autographs for everyone? He’s not in the mood. Especially seeing his beloved club lose like that to rivals at home. That fan obviously can’t deal with rejection.”

Another said: “Why do people think players owe them the world? There’s probably still 1000s people hovering around that ground, he’s not gonna sign everything is he? Fair play.”
