United welcomed Spurs to Old Trafford for a huge top four clash and Varane returned to the side, after missing last week's derby defeat to Manchester City.
He started alongside club captain Maguire and the duo ran through their drills together in front of the Sky Sports cameras. Unfortunately for them, that meant Keane was watching.
The former United skipper noticed the duo's choice of attire on a mild Saturday evening in Manchester and had to have his say.

Keane vented: "Are they gloves? Are they wearing gloves? Is that what I’m seeing? Am I seeing things? That’s a great message, yeah."
Presenter Kelly Cates then stuck up for the pair by stating: "Maybe they’ve just got cold hands."
That saw Keane reply with: "Two big strong centre-halves, I don’t mind full-backs [wearing gloves] but your two centre-halves."
There'll never be a more Roy Keane sentence than that, will there?
For those concerned about what players wear, Varane kept his gloves on for the game and also wore an undershirt.
Maguire ditched the gloves and sported his usual short sleeve shirt.
United ran out 3-2 winners thanks to a stunning Cristiano Ronaldo hat-trick.
Ronaldo opened the scoring inside 12 minutes with an incredible strike from outside the penalty area.
Tottenham made it 1-1 through Harry Kane's penalty before Ronaldo scored his second of the game three minutes later.
An own goal from Maguire in the second half saw Spurs level once again, but Ronaldo popped up with a crucial header nine minutes from time to seal all three points.
Keane did end up defending Maguire for his part in the own goal during his post-match analysis, despite 'Glovegate' a few hours prior.
Sergio Reguilon's cross was intended for Cristian Romero and the England international had to do everything he could to stop the cross reaching him.
"You just can’t be too critical of Maguire," Keane admitted.
"I've been critical of him, but he’s doing his best, it’s an honest mistake. These things happen in football."
He also took issue with Romero celebrating the own goal right in Maguire's face.
The Irishman said after watching the footage back: "Not good, no, no, no. You remember. When you’re a player you take note of that, don’t worry.
"You take note of that."
United are back up to fourth in the Premier League, but have played four more games than Arsenal in fifth.
