PHOTOS: Roy Keane's worst moments against Newcastle United

Roy Keane Signing Autographs as Man Utd player

Including the former Manchester United captain's run-ins with Daryl Janmaat, Alan Shearer and more.

It's fair to say Roy Keane isn't Newcastle United's biggest fan. Nor is there much affection going the other way.

The former Manchester United captain has been sent off twice against the Magpies and squared off with Toon icon Alan Shearer.

But the Irishman has also faced Newcastle as manager of arch rivals Sunderland, admitting his Tyne-Wear derby win over the Magpies was his happiest moment with the Black Cats.

“I always had a bit of hassle against Newcastle. I’d been sent off twice up there. I’d had my battles with [Alan] Shearer and Rob Lee,” Keane wrote in his autobiography 'The Second Half.'

“I always thought they were an arrogant bunch, for a club that had won f*** all. We always got decent results at St James’ Park; it wasn’t a bad place to play. But as for the Toon Army, the Geordies and the hostile reception – I never fell for all that crap.”

To celebrate Keane's ongoing animosity towards Newcastle, then, here is a gallery of some of his best (and worst) moments in battle with them.
