🚨 Rangers legend said Roy Keane ‘hated the sight of him’ during Man United spell ..😬

Former Rangers goalkeeper Andy Goram was speaking on a show and told about his experience at Manchester United and his dealings with Roy Keane when he was the United skipper ..

“I met all the players in the dressing room, Steve McClaren took me around. I knew most of them, the Nevilles and all that, I played cricket with their Da.

“And it came to Roy Keane and you know, you shake hands. He just looked at me and I went, ‘There’s no point is there?’ And he went, ‘no’. And we never spoke for three months.”


Goram wrote in his autobiography.

“The man who saw himself as the heartbeat of the Reds was giving me a message. He just looked right through me as the embarrassed Steve McClaren, the United No 2, tried to introduce the new on-loan keeper to his volcanic captain.

“From that second I knew there was no point in me making an effort with Keane. Roy had things he stood by, things that framed his life, beliefs he clung to with a burning intensity. Well, I had mine. What he did to me on that first morning at work at the most famous football club in the world didn’t faze me.

“He was a Celtic man, I was a Rangers man. He didn’t like me. End of story. Fair enough. After all, I’d done enough to make some Celtic fans dislike me in seven years at Ibrox.

“There was to be no handshake. Ever. The truth is we didn’t exchange a civil word in the three months I was at Old Trafford.”

Goram also told The Mirror that he told the Irishman to ‘F**k off’ during a training ground row after he didn’t pass the ball to Keane.

“Suddenly, I was the target of a volley of abuse from Keane,” Goram said.

“‘Hey you, give me the f*****g ball,’ he screamed. I replied, ‘What, do you get the ball just because you’re Roy Keane? F*** off.’

“The ­atmosphere was icy from that moment on, and on the way off the field, Gary Neville collared me. ‘Goalie,’ he said, ‘we don’t talk to Roy like that down here. We just don’t’. It was a telling insight for me. Of course, I respected Keane as a player, but I couldn’t have that.

“As far as I was concerned, the way he spoke to some of the players was bang out of order. Many of them at Old Trafford were clearly s**t-scared of him.”
