Peter Crouch Opens Exhibition Dedicated To Fan Pictures With Roy Keane
Roy Keane doesn't take too many photos with fans but the ones he does take are all pieces of art, at least that's what Peter Crouch thinks.
The Manchester United legend has a reputation for not being the happiest or most approachable of people and his hard man tendencies on the pitch do seem to continue off the pitch.
It's rare that fans get to take pictures alongside Keane so 'That Peter Crouch Podcast' were interested to see the few examples that do exist, along with stories of what the Irishman said to the fans when getting their pictures.
The former Stoke City striker has now turned the pictures into an exhibition at the Gosport Gallery, named the 'Sixteenth Chapel' after the midfielder's famous number and Sistine Chapel in the Vatican.
Probably the best part of the whole gallery is the captions that go alongside the pictures, which include "Alright but don't make it obvious or else every other f**ker will want one," and 'take your f**king hand off me,' the man has a way with words.
Crouch of course had his own famous meeting with Keane, with the Irishman's disapproval of the Englishman's car leading to its sale.
Speaking to BBC radio the 39-year-old said, "I was playing for Liverpool and England, so I'm thinking, 'I've arrived', so the Megane can go for an Aston Martin.
"But I knew it wasn't me. Getting in it was a struggle, and I never felt right in it. But I pulled up alongside Roy Keane, with a bit of speed garage playing, the sunglasses on, window down, arm out.

"Then I looked at Roy and he looked at me, and you've seen Roy look at people in that way. He looked at me, and it's the smallest I've ever felt.
"It was a look of sheer disgust. I have to thank Roy, I don't even know if he knew it was me or some idiot stopped at the lights, but after he took off and left me in his wake I looked at myself in the mirror... and sold the car that week, and took a big hit on it. It wasn't me."
As well as becoming a hit podcast presenter, the former England striker can now be seen on television on his new Saturday night BBC show 'Peter Crouch: Save Our Summer,' alongside former Radio One DJ Maya Jama.
The first episode aired last weekend and featured the former Spurs player parachuting out of an airplane along with former teammate Jermaine Jenas.
Speaking to the Sun, Crouch revealed he was actually worried he was 'close to death' during the stunt, "I felt close to death. I felt confident the whole way through and as soon as we got to jumping ou I lost it. My feet were like blocks of ice which took the enjoyment out of it.
"...I've been close to death on a few occasions (on the show), and it's not been fun, it's been excruciating at times!"
