Roy Keane lives up to his reputation by revealing three most overrated things in life, including smiling

ROY KEANE was in no mood for spreading Christmas cheer this week as he claimed that “smiling” was one of the most overrated things in life.

The Manchester United legend earned a fierce reputation on the pitch during his playing days with his no-nonsense style leading the club to countless honours.

The 52-year-old Irishman enjoyed success at Sunderland before a spell at Ipswich led to him being axed by Ipswich after failing to lead them to promotion.

Keane, who has also worked as Martin O’Neill’s No2 at Nottingham Forest and Republic of Ireland, is now known for hard-to-please personna as a pundit.

And despite the whole of the UK getting into the festive spirit over recent weeks, it seems none of that Christmas joy has spread to the Old Trafford icon.

Keane appeared on the latest episode of Stick to Football and was talking to fellow pundits Ian Wright and Jamie Carragher when the topic of a recent winter party came up.

And the moody star could not resist sighing before saying: “That party the other night… The noise, the music!

“Someone’s next to me, just shouting at each other, going, ‘What, what!’ Nobody can understand each other! It’s bizarre.

“The three most overrated things in life – listen to this – parties, smiling and fireworks! Pointless!”

That led to an outburst of laughter from Arsenal legend Wright and ex-Liverpool defender Carragher, before the former replied: “What [are] you talking [about]?

“Bro, I’m not having smiling and fireworks as overrated. Roy, smiling and fireworks?”

But Keane was undeterred – and even went as far to claim that he will never attend another party in his lifetime.

However, the former Celtic man did acknowledge that his view of the recent bash could have been influenced by the fact that he had to stand next to “the biggest speaker ever” for the majority of the night.
