Ach Pat, surely not Keane…

Reader Conor points us in the direction of a press release from Pat Rabbitte, in which he states that “Roy Keane was probably the greatest footballer Ireland has ever produced”. Now, he has given himself an out with the use of the word ‘probably’. But my suspicion is that that accolade should more properly reside with another former Manchester United player from north of the border. Unless Pat is just taking partition to its ultimate conclusion. 😉 What do you think?
