Keane was shown the door by Ferguson after a bitter fallout, and ended up signing for Celtic before retiring due to a hip injury, but the Irishman certainly hasn’t forgotten his run-in with Queiroz.
Queiroz is now in charge of the Iranian national side, with his side facing Spain in the second of their group phase matches tonight, and ITV are covering the match for UK television – with Keane speaking as a pundit.

Personally, if we were Queiroz, we’d definitely steer well clear of Keane – for the rest of his life.
What do you think of his comments?
