Roy Keane has not taken kindly to Cristian Romero’s taunting of Harry Maguire after his own goal on Saturday.

Manchester United ultimately beat Tottenham 3-2 at Old Trafford, thanks to a hat-trick from Cristiano Ronaldo.

With 20 minutes to go, United were 2-1 up before a Maguire own goal levelled the scores.

Antonio Conte’s side had looked dangerous from crosses all game and Sergio Reguilon’s cross – intended for the offside Romero – was directed past his own goalkeeper by the United captain.

In the post-match analysis, Keane said on Sky: “You just can’t be too critical of Maguire.

“I’ve been critical of him, but he’s doing his best, it’s an honest mistake.

“These things happen in football.”

The pundits then looked again at Romero’s celebration as he deliberately changed his direction to run up to Maguire and laugh in his face.

Keane reacted: “Not good, no, no, no.

“You remember. When you’re a player you take note of that, don’t worry.

“You take note of that.”

Thankfully for Maguire though, Ronaldo came to his and United’s rescue.

The Portuguese icon powered home a header from a Telles corner to win the game with fewer than ten minutes remaining.
