REPUBLIC OF IRELAND assistant manager Roy Keane is being investigated by police in England after an alleged incident involving a taxi driver this morning.

Manchester Evening News are reporting the 43-year-old was seen confronting the taxi driver in Altrincham town centre after getting out of his Range Rover.

Keane, who lives in nearby Hale, allegedly began swearing and gesturing at the taxi driver before returning to his vehicle and driving off.

A spokesperson for Greater Manchester Police later confirmed an incident had been reported and an investigation was under way.

“At 11.30am this morning, Friday 30 January 2015, police were called to Ashley Road, Altrincham to a report that a man had behaved aggressively towards another man,” the statement read.

“An investigation is underway to establish the exact circumstances surrounding the incident.”

Keane resigned from his role as Aston Villa assistant manager in November amid reports he’d be involved in a training ground bust-up with several senior players.

A couple of weeks previous, the former Man United midfielder was embroiled in more controversy after an incident with a fan in the Irish team hotel in the build-up to the Euro 2016 Qualifier against Scotland.

The FAI confirmed Gardai had been called but the governing body gave Keane their full support.
