It is alleged that the hot-headed former Manchester United captain launched into a foul-mouthed diatribe after leaving his car at traffic lights in order to harangue the man.

The supposed row was said to have started when the two cars were parked in the village Keane lives in, Hale, and came to a head around a mile up the road.

Stunned onlookers near The Unicorn pub in Altrincham town centre witnessed the coming together which was reported by the taxi driver and a Greater Manchester Police spokeswoman confirmed that they are investigating the incident.

She said, “At 11.30am this morning, Friday 30 January 2015, police were called to Ashley Road, Altrincham to a report that a man had behaved aggressively towards another man.”

“An investigation is underway to establish the exact circumstances surrounding the incident.”

This is by no means the first time Roy Keane has been involved in controversy throughout his career in football, with the ex Red Devils and Ireland skipper having recently published an autobiography documenting an eventful career.
