Manchester United legend Bryan Robson has hit out at Roy Keane for his outspoken punditry style.

Keane's outspoken nature on Sky Sports and ITV has seen him become one of the nation's favourite pundits in recent years.

He often targets former side United in his tirades and talks about their lack of 'character' and 'fight' on a regular basis.

The last month has seen Keane lose his mind over 5-0 and 2-0 losses to bitter rivals Liverpool and Manchester City respectively.

Robson, however, thinks the Irishman is approaching his analysis the wrong way.

He told MailOnline per Manchester Evening News: "It hurts when United aren't doing well. I want them to be on top, winning. My love for the club as well as my job with United are why I do little for television.

"I listen to Roy Keane venting all his passion and drive, true to his intense nature."

Robson then goes on to admit he enjoys Graeme Souness' punditry style more despite being a Liverpool legend.

He continued: "I see Graeme Souness biting his lip, measuring what he says. That's one reason why he's the best pundit of the lot.

"Keano doesn't see the intensity which took our team up to second behind Manchester City in the Premier League last season and which lit up the start of this season.

"But then not everyone can be the gaffer."


Keane's most recent outburst came at the expense of Harry Maguire following his celebrations during England vs Albania.

Maguire opened the scoring in Friday night 5-0 win, putting his fingers in his ears during a knee slide.

"He thinks he's shutting the critics up," said Keane at half-time. "But I think it's embarrassing.

"He's been a disgrace the last few months for Man United.

"If he thinks he scores he's going to shut his critics up. Embarrassing."

Do you think Roy Keane takes it too far on punditry?
