Roy Keane must appear in court over an alleged road-rage row with a Manchester taxi driver.

The assistant coach of the Ireland soccer team has been summonsed to go before Trafford Magistrates' Court after police received a report he had behaved aggressively in the incident in January.

It is alleged that the 43-year-old got in to the row with cabbie Fateh Kerar (44) on Ashley Road in Altrincham on January 30. In a statement, Manchester police said: "A summons was posted for Roy Keane to his home address in Hale to appear before Trafford Magistrates court on 31 March for a Section 4A Public Order offence."

The public order offence Keane has been summonsed for is for conduct which may at least be capable of amounting to threatening, abusive or insulting words or behaviour, according to Crown Prosecution Service guidelines.
