Roy Keane ripped into Michael Carrick following Manchester United's 1-1 draw with Chelsea on Sunday.

Carrick has been appointed as caretaker boss following Ole Gunnar Solskjaer's sacking, and Keane has called upon interim manager Ralf Rangnick to shake things up at Old Trafford.

Keane hit out at Carrick for his post-match comments and disagreed with everything the former United man said, which included insisting he was pleased with United's performance in the draw.

"I disagree with everything he said in that interview," Keane said on Sky Sports. "He's talking about a plan. He's talking of his players' efforts, he's proud of them.

"So is that just on Ole? What plans were they doing last few months before Liverpool at home, Man City and Watford? Have the plans only started this week? He was in the dugout with Ole and all of a sudden he's proud of them and they had a plan.

"What about all the other games they had? Why aren't they making the effort in other games? Why aren't they closing players down in other games? They're the worst in the league closing people down.

"I wouldn't be for getting rid of all the staff but they need to be held accountable because they weren't just with Ole, they were with (Jose) Mourinho beforehand - and will they stick on with the new manager?' To come away disappointed and to feel like you have left something out there is a positive."

"Get the right people in for the job and not because you might know somebody or somebody is a decent guy," he added. "Loyalty in the game? If you want loyalty, go get yourself a dog. You've got to work with decent people who are good at their jobs.

"I've studied Man United the last few years and changes they've made. I think there's an element that it's a job for the boys. Just wink wink, look after each other. It's a bit of an old pals' act without a doubt. That's why they're eighth or ninth in the league."
