Cork's Roy Keane has enriched many a Christmas this year thanks to the three-part series, released on social media, of exceptional banter with his pundit co-star Micah Richards.
The mini-series, produced by Sky Bet, has gone down a hit with sports fans, as well as anyone fond of a wisecrack comment, or indeed perhaps Cork’s most loveable rogue, Roy Keane.
In Part One, Roy hops into Micah’s car and hands him a most thoughtful Christmas present: his own autobiography ‘Roy Keane: The Second Half’.
Michah returns the favour, presenting Roy with a ‘Micah Richards’ emblazoned Christmas jumper to match the Roy Keane caricature garment he is wearing.
The boys discuss Only Fools and Horses - Roy is a big fan but Micah has never seen it.
The dynamic duo also chat about Roy’s career as a manager with Roy getting heated about fighting his corner. Bringing up the Man United job, Roy tells Micah, they couldn’t afford him.
The first episode ends with Micah announcing he’s coming to Roy’s for Christmas and Roy says he can, before adding he would have the dogs waiting for him.
The jokes are crisp and constant with Micah asking Roy what he does around Christmas in terms of preparation and Roy quips:
