Former Leeds United defender Gary Kelly has picked an all-time club an international XI, which features Roy Keane.

Former Premier League star Gary Kelly has picked his all-time XI of players he played alongside for club and country.

Having made all his 531 appearances at club level for just one side, it was a case of picking between those he had played with at Leeds United and Republic of Ireland.

Kelly's team was evenly split, with several featuring from international level, including a player disliked by all Leeds fans - Roy Keane.

Nigel Martyn,

Denis Irwin,      Paul McGrath,     Rio Ferdinand,     Ian Harte

Gordon Strachan,    Roy Keane,    David Batty,    Gary Speed

Robbie Keane,    Ian Rush

Kelly made the selections on SkySports' Fantasy Football Club, on which he appeared at the end of last week.

Discussing his selection of Roy Keane, he admitted it was a close call between him and club hero Gary McAllister.

"He's some player. He'd get a game for any club in the world. I could have put Gary McAllister in there but wanted to pick Roy Keane. I couldn't pick everyone."

He also went onto explain his selection of Welshman Ian Rush: "I only got the tail end of Ian Rush career when he came to Leeds. He didn't start an awful lot of games or score a lot for Leeds, but the stature of the man, whether George Graham played him on the wing, he just got on and did the job and worked hard.

"He's in my team for all round what he's done in his career and his presence on the training ground."
