“They were saying Roy Keane was the new kid on the block,”

“In the tunnel, I went to Keane, ‘Welcome to your worst nightmare’.”

“I talked to him for 90 minutes,” he told the Daily Mail. “I was saying, ‘I’m going out with ya wife’. He said, ‘I’m not married’. I said, ‘Aye, she’s there in the stands’.

“He’d look up and I’d just go off with the ball.”

“He went to the newspapers afterwards, ‘Thank God that game’s over, I’ve never been talked to so much in my life’,” recalled Gascoigne.

“I’d talk and talk and talk. ‘How are you doing? Where you from? What you doing tonight? What you doing tomorrow?'”
