He’s made of stern stuff, and he has been on the receiving end of Roy Keane’s anger in the past.

So Keane’s withering dismissal of Matt Doherty last weekend (“Does anyone really think Doherty is going to turn Spurs into a top-four team? Doherty? Doherty? Really?”), while he was on punditry duty, will not throw the Dubliner off balance too much. Doherty’s had the pleasure of an angry phone call from Keane, so barbs from a TV studio will not hurt too much.
