Roy Keane edged out as fans’ favourite pundit as another Utd legend tops poll

Tens of thousands of Mirror Football readers have voted for their favourite pundit and the results are finally in.

Whether you enjoy the Match of the Day musings of Alan Shearer and Ian Wright or the no-nonsense approach taken by Roy Keane, there is a huge variety to punditry of the Beautiful Game.

Some pundits such as Monday Night Football presenters Jamie Carragher and Gary Neville are regulars on our television screens. Others like Tim Cahill may only be seen on rare occasions.

And sometimes words said in the analyst's chair spill over, as seen when Graeme Souness' criticism of Paul Pogba started a fully-fledged war of words between the duo.

But which pundit is the most popular of them all?

Well the results are in and they show that one Manchester United legend scooped 20 per cent of the vote to narrowly beat another Red Devils icon to the accolade of Mirror Football Readers' Favourite Pundit.

That man is Gary Neville, who edges Roy Keane – who received 19 per cent of the share – in the voting. The former England right-back hung up his boots in 2011 and entered the world of punditry.

A brief – and unfortunate – spell as Valencia boss in 2015 aside, Neville has been a regular on Sky Sports for nearly a decade and his insightful analysis is enough to see off the challenge of a fiery rival in Keane.

Arsenal great and Match of the Day staple Ian Wright also makes the podium with 14 per cent of the vote and is trailed by Neville's partner in crime Carragher.

Then Souness, Shearer, Rio Ferdinand, Jamie Redknapp and Alex Scott feature in the middle of the pack, each picking up between three and five per cent of votes.

Receiving just one per cent of voting are former Everton and Australia star Cahill and former England forward Eni Aluko.

Finishing just above the stragglers, Jermaine Jenas will be disappointed to have picked up just two per cent of votes and finishes narrowly behind Patrice Evra and Martin Keown.
