Mccarthy greets new Roy

The Football League Paper - - LEAGUE ONE -

IP­SWICH boss Mick McCarthy was in mis­chievous mood when he heard that his new sign­ing, Ryan Tun­ni­cliffe, wanted to em­u­late Roy Keane.

McCarthy and Keane in­fa­mously clashed be­fore the 2002 World Cup when Keane walked out on Ire­land.

Upon hear­ing that on-loan Manch­ester United mid­fielder Tun­ni­cliffe hopes to em­u­late Keane, McCarthy said: “What, on the pitch or off it!”

Keane played in the No 16 shirt for United and Tun­ni­cliffe has taken that squad num­ber at Ip­swich.

He said: “Roy Keane was my idol. He was a hard-tack­ling mid­fielder which is what I like to be.”
