Keane didn't look one bit impressed by Jose Mourinho's attempt to grab his hand during the recent Aston Villa v Chelsea clash.
"No because the game is still going on," he said frowning.
When reminded that Mourinho is also a man who likes to exert power and control, he focused on the specific and avoided the bait.
"I don't mind all that but the game is still going on. It's disgraceful, I've seen him doing it to other managers. It is a disgrace," said Keane.
It is not beyond the bounds of possibility that in this, we are seeing the birth of a new Premier League rivalry.
"The game is still going on. You wouldn't do that on a Sunday morning, you would get knocked out.
"Was it disrespectful? What do you think? That's a stupid question. Yeah."
