FAI CHIEF EXECUTIVE John Delaney has told Roy Keane he should “Get over himself” and stop his constant sniping over the infamous Saipan bust up in 2002.

Speaking at the official opening of Ardee Celtic’s new facilities in county Louth Delaney told Keane:

“You should get over yourself, it’s ten years ago since it all happened”.

Interviewed by LMFM Delaney said, “For his own good, not for anybody else’s good, but for his own good Roy should just let it go.

“Roy has a lot to say a lot of the time, he was a great man to tell us to get over things a while ago, I think for his own sake he should get over himself.

“I’m aware of the shadow of it, but every time Roy gets a microphone, especially in an Irish domain, he tends to talk about it.

“It’s just a sideshow for me”
