He's a thug and a quitter -- Piers on Keane

ROY Keane is involved in yet another off-the-pitch row after TV host Piers Morgan branded him a thug and a quitter.

Morgan hit out at the former Manchester United captain for his comments about soccer bad boy Joey Barton. According to the America's Got Talent judge, Keane is "not fit to lecture anyone".

Keane has described QPR's Barton as "a liability" after he was hit with a 12-game suspension for his final day sending off against Man City.

Arsenal fan Morgan,said: "Keane was a violent thug on the pitch, a cowardly quitter off it (Ireland, World Cup) and a useless manager."
