The Republic of Ireland assistant manager, who was known for tough tackles and verbal disputes during his playing career, was interviewed by Greater Manchester Police earlier this month, and the Crown Prosecution Service will now decide whether he will face any charges.

Keane, who was working as a pundit for ITV Football in Tuesday’s Champions League game between Chelsea and PSG, is alleged to have left his Range Rover and banged on the window of the taxi at traffic lights. He was also seen making obscene gestures, and issued a tirade of foul-mouthed abuse at the driver.

The former Manchester United captain is then said to have got back in his car and driven off, with the incident being witnessed by onlookers outside the Unicorn pub in Altrincham town centre at 11:30am.

Following Keane’s disappearance, the stunned taxi driver reported the incident to Greater Manchester Police, and Keane will now wait to hear his fate.
