Roy Keane has held a press conference this morning ahead of Ireland's clash with England on Sunday. We may have two huge games coming up in the next week but there was only one thing that anyone wanted to ask the Ireland assistant manager.
What's his opinion on the FAI becoming front page news across the world with that €5 million loan/gift/payment/bung?
Roy Keane, perhaps not surprisingly, unwilling to discuss details of FIFA/FAI today.

He was having none of it. But we only wanted something, anything. Just a soundbite. Thankfully, Roy delivered.
Roy Keane just asked if john Delaney is a distraction...laughs "isn't he always!"

Cheers Roy, that's all we needed. But you do have to laugh at the irony of Roy Keane getting a dig in at Delaney when Martin O'Neill has been fielding the exact same question about Keane since the beginning of his tenure in charge.
Nonetheless, we got the soundbite and we'll be happy with that.
