WATCH: The moment Roy Keane came on in the Liam Miller tribute game

Roy Keane

He got an incredible reception.

Liam Miller’s tribute game took place on Tuesday, and the entire event was a really nice tribute to the former professional footballer.

The game was played in Páirc Uí Chaoimh in Cork, and the atmosphere was really positive.

The Ireland/Celtic team was managed by Martin O’Neil, with Roy Keane taking charge of the United legends side.

Roy Keane, however, did not stay on the sideline for the whole game.

The Corkman subbed himself in with around 30 minutes left in the game, and the reception he got was nothing short of incredible.

Have a look for yourself here:


Spare a thought for Quinton Fortune who came on with Keano. Maybe a little bit of the applause was for him too…

Earlier in the day, we shared a lovely message that Sir Alex Ferguson penned in the official match programme that paid tribute to Miller.

Ferguson described him as a: “wonderful young man, with humility and manners admired by myself and all at the club.”

The game ended 2-2 following goals from Louis Saha and Denis Irwin for United, and Robbie Keane and Colin Healy for the Ireland/Celtic side.

Roy himself missed his penalty in the subsequent shootout, where the Manchester United side winning after spot-kicks.
