Roy Keane back where it all began in Cobh for one night only
Republic of Ireland assistant manager Roy Keane returned to his old stomping ground tonight in a coaching capacity for Cobh Ramblers as part of a charity fundraiser.
The former Ireland and Manchester United captain played briefly for the club before he was snapped up by Nottingham Forest manager Brian Clough in the summer of 1990.
Keane was back on Leeside today as a coach for the fundraising game between the current Springfield junior team and a team consisting of ex-Cobh Ramblers players.
Keane received a hero's welcome back to his old stomping ground as he motivated his old side for the charity game.
Keane has been linked with the vacant managerial role at Aston Villa following the dismissal of Paul Lambert last night. He had been installed as Lambert's assistant in the summer before he quit to concentrate on his international role.
