Gabriel Agbonlahor has accused Roy Keane of being a bully following his comments on Harry Maguire after England’s win over Albania.
England defeated Albania in an emphatic 5-0 victory at Wembley, with Maguire scoring the opening goal of the contest.
Maguire had a message for his critics while celebrating, putting his hands to his ears while sliding on his knees.
It’s safe to say that Roy Keane was not impressed with the celebration. The former Manchester United skipper tore into Maguire during ITV’s half-time analysis.
“That’s embarrassing, he’s been a disgrace the last few months for Man Utd.”

Keane has faced criticism in wake of the game for his unduly negative punditry, with Gabby Agbonlahor, speaking on talkSPORT, being one of those to take aim at the Irishman.
“I’ve seen the quotes and the video of it from Roy Keane and I think Roy Keane is being a big bully, there.”
“I think he’s bullying him because Harry Maguire has been under a lot of pressure after some not very good performances for Manchester United.”
Ultimately, this is Keane’s brand and the reason that both Sky Sports and ITV feature him on the big events. He always provides the spark for conversation.
In doing so, he’s making very few friends, but does he strike you as the kind of guy that would care?
