Alan Shearer Has A Classic Roy Keane Story For Match Of The Day's Return

Alan Shearer Has A Classic Roy Keane Story For Match Of The Day's Return

 

Match of the Day makes a surprise return to BBC One tonight, as the team transfer their new Top 10 podcast to the airwaves. Tonight, Gary Lineker, Ian Wright and Alan Shearer will debate the Premier League's top 10 captains. As usual, Roy Keane stories are never too far away with there's some Premier League nostalgia on the agenda.

On their list of captains, Keane ranks at only number four, something which surprises Gary Lineker and is clearly not the doing of Ian Wright, who reveals himself a major fan of the Corkman. Ultimately, it was Shearer who is not a fan, recounting the aftermath of a famous incident between the two.

With Newcastle leading against Manchester United at St. James' Park in the last minute of the game back in 2001, Shearer riled Keane into reacting, seeing "the red mist", and getting sent off. Their subsequent clash after the United man's red card is one of the more famous of Keane's career, but Shearer here tells the story of the aftermath, with Keane waiting for Shearer in the tunnel afterwards and the Geordie captain fully expecting it.
