Roy Keane and daughter Caragh have posed together for a lovely birthday snap in which the former professional footballer wished her a happy birthday. 

The soccer pundit and Caragh are seen posing at her university graduation, while other pictures on his Instagram page show her doing a jigsaw with her dad as a small baby, and posing in front of a car as an adult.

In one happy snap she has a pen stuck up her nose.

Keano posted the picture alongside the words: "Happy birthday no. 2."

Caragh is Roy's second child with his wife Theresa Doyle who he married in 1997 in his native Mayfield in Cork.

The couple also have a son, Aiden, and two other daughters - Shannon Marie and Leah.

Roy who previously described Theresa as his "rock", rarely posts about his marriage and is particular about keeping his life private.

However, he sometimes shares snaps of his children and wished his youngest daughter Leah a happy birthday back in July, adding that she needs to "stop getting so old".

Since joining the social media site in February this year, he has amassed a whopping 1.8m followers on Instagram.

He also reveals a less serious side in some of the posts, with one showing him dressed up as Chase from Paw Patrol.
