'Am I seeing things?' – Roy Keane fumes at Man Utd stars Maguire and Varane for wearing gloves in warm-up for Tottenham

ROY KEANE was up to his usual tricks on Saturday evening – as he blasted Harry Maguire and Raphael Varane for wearing gloves.

The not-so-hardmen centre-backs opted to keep their hands nice and snug as they loosened up in the warm-up at Old Trafford.


That was despite temperatures hitting a mild 11 degrees at kick-off in Manchester.

The TV cameras focused in on the United back four – Maguire, Varane as well as full-backs Diogo Dalot and Alex Telles – all in mittens going through their heading drills.

And unsurprisingly former Red Devils skipper Keane let out his exasperation with a trademark comment.

Speaking as a pundit on Sky Sports, the Irishman blasted: "Are they in gloves? Are they wearing gloves? Am I seeing things?"

He then quipped: "That's a great message that. Two big strong centre-halves!"

Maguire and Varane played the full 90 minutes as the central defensive pairing.

Despite their hands toasting, it was far from a coasting victory – having to go ahead three times through Cristiano Ronaldo to secure all three points.

And Maguire was still caught cold in the second half.

Sergio Reguilon slid a low cross into the danger zone and the current skipper stuck out a leg – diverting the ball beyond his helpless goalkeeper David de Gea for a first ever own goal.

Tottenham ace Cristian Romero mocked Maguire by shouting in his face.

Although it was the England defender who had the last laugh thanks to Ronaldo's brilliant header to secure his first Red Devils hat-trick in 14 years.

On Romero's antics, Keane added: "Not good. You'll take note of that, don't worry.

"I’ve been critical of Maguire, but you can’t there [for the own goal].

"He’s doing his best, it’s an honest mistake and these things happen in football.”
