Roy Keane booed as he appears on big screen in front of 50,000 fans
The Man United legend saw the funny side at least
Roy Keane was able to see the funny side as he was booed by the majority of the 50,000 crowd at Dublin's Croke Park on Saturday.
The Manchester United legend was supporting his native Cork in their Gaelic Football clash with Dublin, but his county were unable to secure the victory as they lost by 0-21 to 0-10.
To make things worse, Keane's allegiances saw him booed during the match. With Dublin in control after nearly 50 minutes, the camera panned to the Sky Sports pundit, who was sat in the stands.
The home supporters quickly realised who it was on the big screen and responded with a loud chorus of boos. However, Keane was able to see the funny side as he broke into a wide grin.

Saturday's defeat also left Keane out of pocket, with an image posted on social media showing the 50-year-old handing over €20 with the caption: "Handy money Dublin v Cork".

Earlier this week, Arsenal legend Patrick Vieira couldn't help but aim a few subtle digs at Keane, joking that he didn't want to touch the former United man's shirt and insisting he was the 'much better' player of the two.
Vieira admits he has 'massive respect' for the Irishman
While the two former players have since put their feud to bed - even working together as pundits since their respective retirements - Crystal Palace manager Vieira still took a funny swipe at Keane while looking back at the shirts which best evoke memories of his career.
However, Vieira then expressed his admiration for Keane's leadership qualities and insisted he has 'massive respect' for the Irishman.

Vieira also insisted that he got the better of Keane 'really often', and when he asked if he felt he was the better player of the two, he replied with a smile: "Much better. I would say much better, yes."
