Roy Keane pulled the boots on one more time this afternoon for his ex-team-mate Liam Miller‘s tribute match, and the Republic of Ireland assistant manager received a real hero’s welcome from supporters.
The former Manchester United captain started on the bench as a Red Devils XI faced off against a Celtic team in Cork, with the aim of raising money for the Miller family and their associated charities, after the midfielder’s tragic death from pancreatic cancer in February.
Keane has been making headlines recently with his coaching methods whilst working as the Ireland assistant manager coming under scrutiny earlier this month, as a fall-out with Cardiff City midfielder Harry Arter was made public.
However, if the Irish public are angry with Keane they’re doing a helluva good job at hiding it, as this clip from earlier today will show:

In the end, Robbie Keane’s goal for the Hoops couldn’t stop a United victory on penalties, but it was all for a very worthy cause.

What do you think of the reaction to Keane’s arrival?
