Roy Keane unleashed a scathing attack on Manchester United captain Harry Maguire and goalkeeper David de Gea during the half-time of their Premier League fixture at Tottenham.
The Sky Sports pundit was furious at the goal United conceded and highlighted the errors of Maguire and De Gea, claiming they should be ashamed of the way they defended.
Steven Bergwijn gave the hosts the lead in the first half after turning away from Maguire with ease before unleashing a shot past De Gea.

Manchester United captain Maguire was heavily criticised for not stopping the Spurs goal
The goalkeeper was unable to keep the ball out of the net despite getting a strong hand on the effort.
And Keane did not hold back in his criticism of the shot-stopper as well as his captain and Luke Shaw, who also had a role in the goal.
‘I’m shocked at that goal I’ve watched a lot of football over the years but I’m fuming there,’ said Keane.

Keane said De Gea, Maguire and Shaw should not be allowed on the team bus after the game
‘I can’t believe Shaw heading the ball up in the air. I’m staggered at Maguire. I’m sick to death of this goalkeeper.
‘I would be fighting him at half time, I would be swinging punches. This is an established international goalkeeper.’
Keane continued his rant and even suggested the trio should not be allowed back on the team bus after the game.
‘You’ve got to impose your personality on the game. Maguire and De Gea, I wouldn’t let them on the bus after the match. Shocking. I’m disgusted with it. Maguire, De Gea you should hang your heads in shame.
Luke Shaw was also on Keane’s hit list after a mis-placed header in the build up to the goal
‘You look at Shaw. He heads it up in the air and starts running forward.
‘De Gea is the most overrated goalkeeper I’ve seen in a long, long time.’
United have been reliant on De Gea in recent years but he has been prone to mistakes this season with three errors leading to goals prior to Friday’s game.
Keane is never one to shy away from venting his frustrations and earlier in the evening the Irishman criticised Aston Villa’s Jack Grealish for laughing during his side’s draw with Sheffield United on Wednesday.
