Martin O'Neill Wishes Forest Players 'Good Luck' Trying To Fine Roy Keane

If the Nottingham Forest players wish to see Roy Keane fined under the club's new code of conduct, then Martin O'Neill wishes them the best of luck in doing so.

Keane was booked during Forest's 2-0 defeat away to Stoke on Saturday.

"He was a driven person as a player and he is also a driven person as a manager and now in this particular role it is pleasing to see – but I will find out what he said," O'Neill told the Nottingham Post.

We have a new code of conduct coming in now, for us, internally. It is something we look at. So if the players want to fine Roy, good luck to them...

First of all I will need to find out what it was. I myself had an occasional run-in with a particular linesman down here. We had a total disagreement at what constituted a foul.

I am not exactly sure what Roy’s situation was. But I do know about my own situation.

I just spoke to the linesman after a very, very obvious foul and he waved to play on, because he did not think it was a foul. I just felt that we were in real difficulty if he did not think it was.

Following the weekend's defeat, Forest are ninth in the Championship, four points outside the playoff places.
