Roy Keane has had a subtle dig at Patrick Vieira before the pair line up alongside one another in the television studio this summer. 

Two of the pundits who will be appearing on ITV as part of their EURO 2020 coverage, the former Manchester United captain could not help himself when talking about his former Arsenal counterpart.

Fierce rivals over a number of seasons in the Premier League, while tempers have long since simmered down in the years since it is clear that Keane still enjoys to rile Vieira just a bit.

Speaking with Gary Neville and Micah Richards for Sky Bet, talk turned toward the panel of pundits ITV will be using for the competition.

Featuring the likes of Roy Keane, Vieira, Neville, Ian Wright, Graeme Souness and Eni Aluko, the Cork native explained how his relationship with the French World Cup winner has developed.

"Yeah, he just panders to me, and that's it," responded Keane when the question of how he gets on with Vieira was put to him.

When Keane's former teammate Neville asked aloud if Vieira was still in his most recent managerial job with Nice in France's Ligue 1, Keane had another dig at the Frenchman.

"He just lost another job," he remarked, "yeah.

"Why do you think he's doing punditry? He lost his job. That's why we're all ******* doing it!"
