Jamie Carragher and Micah Richards respond to Roy Keane’s shock move after he appeared to open his own Instagram account.
Keane has often portrayed himself as somebody who is not keen on social media and has hit out at players for using it in the past.
But now in a surprising turn of events, the former Premier League footballer turned controversial pundit has finally got back on his word.
His first post from the account, which comes with the username @officialKeane16, was a picture of himself looking like he was about to head but his dog with the caption ‘A man’s best friend’.
But that was immediately jumped on by Carragher and Richards who both used the same response by simply posting a pair of eyes emoji. Get ready for regularly mickey takes from the duo.
It comes in the same week that a hilarious viral TikTok video was shown to the midfielder which which shows the Manchester United legend dancing after scoring a goal in FIFA’s Ultimate Team player mode.
The video was uploaded to social media before Richards was told to show it to him in the Sky Sports studio and that’s exactly what he did, however the Irishman was quick to make out that he was not impressed.
Roy Keane loves a sweaty rant, and his response to the video was no different with Richards telling his Twitter followers that he couldn’t play the audio of the reaction.
He wrote: “A lot of fans asked me to show Roy a funny video from TikTok and I wasn’t going to let you all down… I just can’t play you the real audio.”

Keane was caught looking rather gloomy whilst watching the computer generated version of himself doing some modern day dance celebrations which had Richards and ex-Liverpool boss Graeme Souness chuckling away in the background.
