Harry Redknapp has claimed Roy Keane should join Manchester United's coaching staff and help them sort out "deep-rooted issues".

United were beaten 5-0 by Liverpool last weekend, putting Ole Gunner Solskjaer under immense pressure, and Redknapp believes Keane would add an air of confidence at Old Trafford.

"It was interesting last week listening to all the pundits talk about Ole's situation. I went with Graeme Souness, I think he needs a bit of help. I'm not saying his staff are not good lads and good, but they look to me as a very quiet group," Redknapp told talkSPORT.

"I know Michael Carrick very well, I love Michael, he's a fantastic footballer and a great person and he's got other people around him. Sometimes you can't be afraid to think that another bit of help coming in, it will help me and help the team.

"I just think he maybe needs somebody else, a different [character] alongside him in the group to help them. He looked a lonely figure last week standing on that touchline. Do you know who'd I take at Manchester United? Everyone's going to think I'm absolutely mad. I'd bring in Roy Keane. If I was Ole I'd think to myself, he won't mess around and he'll sort one or two out."

Keane, who currently works as a pundit for Sky Sports, slammed Harry Maguire for his performance in Saturday's 3-0 win over Tottenham, and would certainly bring a bite to Solskjaer's coaching staff.
