Roy Keane had no intention of congratulating Rangers after winning their first Scottish Premiership title in ten years on Sunday.
Steven Gerrard’s men were crowned champions following Celtic’s 0-0 draw at Dundee United.
Before the Manchester derby later today, Roy Keane was in Sky Studios.
When asked if he had any words of celebration for the Rangers, he simply replied, “For the Rangers? No.
“Obviously it’s been a tough year for Celtic, but they’ll bounce back next year like all the big clubs do.”
This baffled Micah Richards as he laughed at his colleague’s blunt response.
Celtic was Keane’s childhood club.
He played for them in the final months of his career in 2005/06 and so made no secret of where his loyalty lay in the Old Firm debate.
Rangers set themselves on the verge of crowning champions with a comfortable 3-0 win over St Mirren on Saturday.
This left them 21 points ahead of Celtic who needed to win to avoid the crowning of their bitter rivals.
However, they were unable to do so as a Dundee United battled for a point.
