Lockdown has been weird for us all. Some of you might have taken up yoga, or starting exercising more in an attempt to keep the stress at bay.

However, as restrictions are eased, many people are finding it hard not to return to their old, self-destructive habits.

Case in point, Roy Keane, who once again unleashed a memorable tirade following Manchester United's horrendous - in Keane's opinion anyway - first half performance against Tottenham on Friday night.

The Sky Sports pundit took particular exception to the manner of Spurs' first goal, which in fairness featuring a comedy of errors from the United backline. First, Luke Shaw fluffed his clearance, then Harry Maguire got turned inside out by Steven Bergwijn, before David de Gea failed to keep out the Dutchman's tame shot.

"It's a massive defensive error - three people involved and De Gea can do much better," Keane fumed.

"I'm shocked by that goal. I've watched a lot of football over the years but to give away that goal... I'm fuming.

"I'm staggered at Maguire, staggered that an international player can just get done like this and I'm sick to death of this goalkeeper."

A fairly explosive start to be sure, but the rant took a truly astonishing turn next, with Keane claiming that the performances warranted a UFC-style punch-up in the dressing room.

"I would be fighting him at half-time, I would be swinging punches at that guy. I am flabbergasted.

"Maguire and De Gea, I wouldn't even let them on the bus after the match. Get a taxi back to Manchester."

I've just done the maths and an Uber back from north London to Manchester at that time on a Friday night would cost in excess on £200. That's one expensive mistake.

"These are established international players. Do your job. We're not on about winning league, just getting into the top four! Shocking. I am disgusted," he continued.

"Maguire and De Gea should hang their heads in shame. De Gea is the most overrated goalkeeper I've seen in a long, long time.

"That's not even going in the top corner. This is middle of the goal.

"That is not a great save, that's his job, middle of the goal, good height for him. He should be catching that. That's not even that high it's the middle of the goal."

Blimey.
