Video: Republic of Ireland striker Robbie Keane responds brilliantly to Roy Keane's cheeky comment

Robbie Keane

We'll be honest, Robbie Keane is the bravest man in the world for taking a pop at Roy Keane!

In case you missed it yesterday, Republic of Ireland assistant manager and terrifying beard owner Roy Keane almost broke the internet with his brilliant response to questions from the assembled media regarding the potential availability of namesake Robbie Keane.

Keane was asked by a reporter if the LA Galaxy striker – who's wife has just had a baby–  would be in contention for the crucial Euro 2016 qualifier with Germany on Thursday evening. He gave a hilarious response, claiming that the striker isn't the one who had the baby and wouldn't be breast feeding.

Now, Roy Keane isn't exactly known for his great sense of humour, or ability to take a few digs with good faith or without snapping someone's leg. 

So when Robbie Keane decided to have a very cheeky pop at his assistant boss, we're almost certain that the former Tottenham Hotspur and Liverpool forward is the bravest man in the world.

Why? Well, watch this:

With Ireland needing a win to put some pressure on second placed Poland in qualification Group D, we reckon Robbie Keane might just be ready to celebrate the birth of his second son in style.
