Rumours regarding Roy Keane's departure from Aston Villa rumble on today as the Corkman makes an appearance on the back page of The Sun.

Not long after Keane's exit from the club, reports in The Daily Mail claimed that he had run-ins with some of the club's 'big name' players, these being Gabby Agbonlahor, Charles N'Zogbia and Fabian Delph. The reports also said that the atmosphere was "horrible" whenever the former Man Utd midfielder was present. Paul Lambert has since denied these rumours, saying Keane left due to commitments with Ireland.


The Sun claims that on Tuesday of this week, the Ireland assistant manager turned up at the house of Tom Cleverley, who is on loan at Aston Villa from Man Utd. Keane believed that Cleverley was one leaking stories to the media.

The paper says that Keane, who may have been captured on CCTV, "furiously" pressed the doorbell and waited outside for 15 minutes before storming off when no one came to the door. He has since accepted that the midfielder was not the one talking to the media and is "looking for another target".

There should be the equivalent of a witness protection programme for those in the sight of Roy Keane.
