ROY KEANE has quite the Qatar World Cup highlight reel, from the Irishman jumping into a bin, rowing live on air with fellow pundit Graeme Souness to slamming Brazil’s dancing.
The Manchester United legend was a part of a star-studded ITV punditry team.

He joined ex-Arsenal striker Ian Wright, Gary Neville, Souness, Hal Robson-Kanu, Laura Woods, Seema Jaswal, Joe Cole, Karen Carney, Eniola Aluko, Nigel de Jong, Nadia Nadim and Mark Pougatch in breaking down World Cup matches.
With his country Ireland failing to qualify, Keane was one of few who could give a 100 per cent neutral take on events.
SunSport takes a look at Keane’s best moments in Qatar.
IN THE BIN
Keane hurt his knees in the Middle East by jumping into a bin.
The legendary midfielder scored in a crunch match between broadcasters ITV and the BBC.
Keane whipped off his shirt after netting past pal Micah Richards and celebrated wildly.
But down the other end of the pitch was a bin, and Keane decided it was a good idea to bizarrely jump inside with one leg before hopping out using his other.

PAYING FOR BREKKIE
Keane jokingly told Jordan Henderson he needs to “be a bit more generous” after he lumped the Irishman with a breakfast bill.
Ahead of England’s crunch World Cup quarter-final with France, Keane revealed that he had recently met-up with the Anfield skipper.
However, Hendo left Keane to pay the bill.
Speaking on ITV, Keane said: “I’ve always liked Jordan, always liked him as a kid and he’s a pretty humble guy.
“Saying that, I did meet him a few months ago for breakfast and I had to pay.
“He should be a bit more generous.”

Neutral pundit Keane decided to take notes during England’s 3-0 round of 16 win over Senegal.
And he gave a short but accurate assessment of the game: “Game over.”
Neville grabbed Keane’s notes, which didn’t go down too well.

Do work colleagues get on your nerves? Well, they get on Keane’s nerves too.
So much so that Keane FLEW home from Qatar as a result.
Speaking to Micah Richards and Gary Neville over lunch for Sky Bet, Keane described his experience overall as “okay” and “fine”.
Neville then chipped in: “To be fair Roy went home for four or five days as well actually. He went back.”
Keane replied: “I had a break. I needed a break, just my tolerance levels.
“Yeah, people get on my nerves.”

BANK CARD REJECTED
Keane is undoubtedly a very wealthy man.
But he suffered embarrassment in Qatar when his bank card was rejected TWICE.
He set himself a daily spending limit to the tune of £50-a-day.
Keane explained to Neville and Richards: “I went over my limit, I have a budget of £50 a day here.
“You know when your card is rejected, it is embarrassing, isn’t it?”

SLAMMING BRAZIL’s DANCE MOVES
Flicks, tricks and loose hips… Not on Keane’s watch.
The pre-tournament favourites, Brazil, showed off their dance moves before their quarter-final exit to Croatia.
Their round of 16 clash against South Korea, in particular, saw Brazil run out 4-1 winners and execute a number of stylish celebrations.
From a team Pigeon dance with manager Tite, to West Ham’s Lucas Paqueta going solo.
Fans were excited, but Keane was far from impressed.
He said on the Samba Boys: “It’s like watching Strictly. I can’t believe what I’m watching.
“I don’t like this. I think it’s disrespecting the opposition. It’s four [goals] and they’re doing it every time.
“I don’t mind the first kind of little jig – whatever they’re doing – but they’re still doing it after that and then the manager getting involved with it.
“I’m not happy with it, I don’t think it’s very good at all.”

SOUNESS BUST UP
Keane and Souness didn’t pull any punches in their on-air verbal bust-up during ITV’s half-time coverage of Argentina vs Saudi Arabia.
Liverpool great Souness says the Saudi player had no interest in where the ball was – only the whereabouts of the player he was tracking.
Souness said the call is not down to “opinion” but “fact”, which prompted Keane to respond saying: “Well I’m here to give my opinion – that’s not a penalty.”
The bust-up was much to the delight of viewers, who took to social media to rave.
