Roy Keane quizzed over 'road rage row'

ROY Keane has been questioned by British police about an alleged road rage row with a taxi driver.

Ireland's assistant manager is said to have launched a foul-mouthed tirade and made obscene gestures after jumping out of his Range Rover to confront the taxi driver.

Fateh Kerar said former Manchester United captain Keane (43) followed his vehicle and acted "very aggressively" before confronting him at traffic lights in Altrincham, Greater Manchester, on January 30.

Mr Kerar (44) claims he was left "shaking and terrified" by the alleged incident.

He claimed the row was sparked when he and a female passenger spotted Keane as they stopped at an ATM in nearby Hale.

Angry

Mr Kerar claims he said "hello" to the former Manchester United star and then told him to "smile", before an "angry" Keane pursued them in his own car.

"He got out of his car in the middle of the road, held two fingers up and walked out in front of me. He was pointing and swearing and being very aggressive," he said.

Keane, who lives in Cheshire, was interviewed under caution by officers at a police station earlier this month.

"Mr Keane was interviewed under caution at a police station on February 3. We are currently in contact with the CPS (Crown Prosecution Service) about this matter," a Greater Manchester Police spokesperson said.
