Sunderland boss Roy Keane paid tribute to Reds' fans after being given a hero's welcome on his return to Old Trafford on Saturday.


Despite losing out 1-0 to his former team, the ex-skipper was pleased with his side's dogged display and even more appreciative of the welcome afforded him by the Old Trafford faithful.

"I have to say the reception I got from the United fans was fantastic," he told Setanta Sports. "They've always been great to me and I appreciate that very much.

"It's small consolation at this moment in time because we lost the game. Nevertheless I'm very grateful because they've always given me nothing but great support."

Sunderland put up a brave fight throughout the ninety minutes, but threatened little up front, much to Keane's frustration.

"We would have been happier if we'd have tested Edwin van der Sar a bit more and to lose a goal on a set-piece is disappointing," he admitted. "But that's the nature of the Premier League, one mistake and you're punished.

"I told the players before the game to go out there and enjoy it and give 100 per cent. When you come to places like Old Trafford you have to enjoy it and I think the players did.

"Of course we're disappointed we didn't get anything out of it, but I was delighted with the players' attitude."

I was overwhelmed at the whole stadium even the away fans singing the Keano song. I had goosebumps just watching the atmosphere. It was great seeing Keano coming from his seat to talk to Ole and the reaction when Fergie and Keane shook hands, at the end of the game.

KEANO - MUFC LEGEND.

Same as that mate. I was moved nearly to tears!! United fans will always love keano!
Yep, I hear you MK. It was a strange game with the return of Keane and the whole Ole thing as well. Everyone was still singing Keano when Ole was getting his guard of honour.

Keano was touched by the reception he got at OT. He was chewing his gum like a savage and tried to put on his coolest OT-face :D

I think it was Bobby Charlton saying Brian Robson and Keano is the two best players ever playing for Man Utd. I dont think he's far off.
