Roy Keane has endeared himself to the hearts of the nation once again with an absolutely adorable picture posted on Instagram of himself with his granddaughter.

Although a relative newcomer to the social media site, Keane has proved to be an effortlessly witty contributor who has delighted his 1.3 million followers.

He has captioned the picture, ‘My granddaughter idolises me. I told her to join the queue’ on his officialkeane16 page.

Fans have appreciated the Cork man's wry comments, with one writing, “Only posted 7 times and is already the best account on Instagram.”

Another added: “Roy Keane lights up Instagram (again) with gorgeous and witty post featuring his granddaughter.”The former Cobh Ramblers midfielder has posted two pictures featuring his grandkids, including one showing off his trademark scowl.

However, the former football hard man has been enjoying tapping into his softer side since joining Instagram.

Although Roy has been married to his wife Theresa Doyle for more than 20 years and is a father of five, he is very quiet about his personal life.

He has previously joked about hoping to spend more time with his wife and kids after retirement, but that after a couple of months they wanted him to go back to work.

In previous posts he is seen ‘Dressed as a leprechaun chasing Lineker for a bag of crisps. Do me a favour..' and in cycling gear with the caption, ‘I’ll wear the helmet but if you see me wearing lycra, run me over’.
