Former Manchester United captain Roy Keane has branded the side’s present skipper Harry Maguire as a ‘disgrace and an embarrassment’ after his goal celebration in England’s 5-0 win over Albania Friday.
The defender’s shocking celebration saw him stick it to his critics with his goal for the Three Lions.
Maguire scored the opener for Three Lions on Friday night at Wembley with a powerful header early in the first half.
And after heading in the goal, the Manchester United defender, who has come under heavy criticism over his performances in recent weeks for the club – cupped his hands to the crowd and then put his fingers in his ears.
This was seen by pundits as a clear jibe at his critics, who are mostly Manchester United ex-players.
The celebration particularly angered Keane, who has been one of Maguire’s biggest critics.
“He’s put his hands to his ears like he’s shutting the critics up, but I think that’s embarrassing,” Keane said during half-time of ITV’s coverage.
“He’s been a disgrace the last few months for Man United. He thinks because he’s scored there, he’s going to shut his critics up? Embarrassing.”
