When asked to give a rating on Lingard's technique, the former Manchester United captain replied: "One! I used to do this dance before, usually after a load of Bacardi and coke.
"When he scores goals like that... I suppose I have to give him a bit of credit."
It was obvious how Keane would react but it still left fans on social media in stitches.

Lingard's two goals have taken him to eight since arriving on loan from Manchester United in January.
That is the most in the league since January and Keane spoke fondly of the 28-year-old's effort to fit in at a new team.
"What I give Jesse credit for is that he turned up at West Ham, having not played much football for Man United over the last few months.
"So he's obviously kept himself in good shape, sign of a good pro. He had a difficult spell at United, maybe took his eye off the ball off the field.
"He was always a talented boy. He looks focused, he looks hungry, he always had that talent. It's great to see."
Jarrod Bowen added a third for West Ham in the second half and as it stands, they'll end this weekend in fourth place.
