Suddenly Keano doesn’t seem quite so intimidating…

“Ooh, shut up about my big weapon! Little John, you are awful!”

May 1991: Nottingham Forest star Roy Keane helps to promote that year’s FA Cup final (the one when Gazza went mental on Gary Charles) by donning a half-arsed Robin Hood costume.

At least the snapper didn’t make him wear tights. But behind the forced smile, you can see Roy thinking, “This is bullshit and you can stick it up yer bollix, you English c**t.”

The repressed rage caused by having to wear that little hat was what tipped Roy over the edge at the 2002 World Cup. Probably.
