Roy Keane thinks Ireland's celebrations of the friendly victory against Lithuania on Tuesday were "way over the top".

With virtually the last kick of the game, an Ireland side which had four goals ruled out for offside, got a 1-0 win thanks to a superb strike by Troy Parrott. Exuberant celebrations from players, management and fans followed.

On ITV, Mark Pougatch asked Keane if there is now a "a feel-good factor" about this Ireland team.

Roy Keane: 'Come on, get over it'

"It was an important win, better late than never - they made hard work of it," said Keane.

"But I think the celebrations at the end, way over the top.


"But an important goal, even for Parrott, young player. His career has probably stalled a little bit. But they kept going, showed a bit of spirit and fight.

"You take the win. The feel-good factor, keep that going, a bit of momentum."


Ian Wright added: "You look at [Stephen Kenny's] win percentage, it's not great. The main thing is that there is a feel-good factor. You can see what it means to them to get that win, and hopefully they can build on that."

Keane interjected: "It's way over the top, Wrighty. Honestly, that’s way over the top. For managers, staff and players to react that way to a friendly win. Come on, get over it."
