ROY KEANE IS a notoriously complex and divisive character, so much that he can even impress die-hard Manchester City fans.

Speaking on Ian Dempsey’s show on Today FM, former Oasis guitarist and songwriter Noel Gallagher revealed his admiration for the ex-United captain despite hating the club itself.

“I’ve liked the excerpts, particularly him slagging off Ferguson, who might be one of the most hateful people I’ve ever come across,” he said.

“I love Roy Keane. I actually liked him when he was at United.

“I wouldn’t mind meeting him, but while standing back in case he head-butted you.”

However, Gallagher’s fondness for the Ireland assistant boss does not necessarily extend to wishing him success for the future.

“As a character, I think he’s great. I hope one day he takes over United and runs it into the ground.”
