WHEN YOU DISAGREE with Manchester United, you disagree with Paddy Crerand.

The Old Trafford great — a European Cup winner in 1968 with the club — is now more known for his on-air rants and work as a MUTV presenter.

Today, Crerand was moved to take on former United Roy Keane after the Corkman’s insistence last night that Nani deserved to be sent off against Real Madrid.

‘Roy Keane was in a minority of one,” Crerand told the BBC. “Not one person said it was a red card apart from Roy. Does Roy want to be noticed, or is he envious, jealous or has got the needle with Manchester United because of what happened?”

“Roy Keane is the one person that has come out and stated he should have been sent off, nobody else agrees with him. So why are we talking about Roy Keane? Why aren’t we talking about the other 99 per cent of people who said it wasn’t a sending off.

‘Why are we talking about Roy Keane, because he played for Manchester United? Well let me tell you something. I’ve played for Manchester United, I’ve played in a European Cup final, and Roy didn’t. The referee was wrong.”
