Roy Keane had a hilarious reaction to an Aston Villa training ground scrap

ROY KEANE just can't stay out of the headlines these days.

It feels like every time we wake up, the former Ireland captain is in the news for one reason or another.

Sometimes it's a hilarious Instagram post, and others he's linked with top managerial jobs around Europe.

Say what you want about the Corkman, but he really is box office.

And this Gabriel Agbonlahor story from his time at Aston Villa shows his Irish sense of humour at its very best.

Keane was assistant manager at the time, while club legend Agbonlahor was discussing putting himself about a bit too much in training, and how that can go down amongst the squad.

"I was sent in from training for a couple of bad tackles, as you do! You feel like the naughty kid outside the headmaster’s office waiting for the gaffer to come in, you have to apologise," Agbonlahor said on talkSPORT.

Recalling another incident, he said: "Tempers do go in the air. I remember Leandro Bacuna and Kieran Richardson training on a Sunday and they were swinging it out – no one connected, it was 0-0.

"But after it finished, Roy Keane was like ‘well, you both need boxing lessons for starters, no one connected. We call that a bore draw!'"

Classic Keano.
