Keane trolls Redknapp with Leicester ‘League of their own’ comment

Roy Keane produced another brilliant one-liner aimed at Jamie Redknapp during Sky Sports’ Premier League coverage on Sunday afternoon.

Debates between the pair normally make for great television, although it was a sole comment from the Irishman that sent the studio into fits of laughter.

Keane was responding to the news that Leicester City trio James Maddison, Ayoze Perez and Hamza Choudhury had been dropped by manager Brendan Rodgers for their trip to West Ham due to a COVID-19 protocol breach.

Leicester would go on to lose the match 3-2, despite two second-half goals from Kelechi Iheanacho.

Keane vs Redknapp…Again

When asked about the incident post-match, Keane replied: “Brendan [Rodgers] is there after the game, it’s a disappointing result.

“He’s then asked about the discipline of the players, clearly frustrated and no doubt disappointed with the players’ behaviour.

“I’m led to believe they were caught in their hotel room watching A League Of Their Own.”

The sports-based game show has featured Redknapp as a team captain since it launched in 2010.

The studio was sent into hysterics at Keane’s comments, with Redknapp smiling and briefly bowing his head before claiming: “He’s just asked me if he can come on the show!”

Keane’s comments were topical, given that ‘A League Of Their Own’ returned to our TV screens last week.

There is no doubting that the ex-Spurs midfielder has been an important part of the show’s rise to popularity.

The latest episode sees usual captains Redknapp and ex-England cricket captain Andrew Flintoff joined by regular panellist Romesh Ranganathan and the returning Jack Whitehall for a road trip.

Sunday’s result means that Leicester stay in third place in the Premier League, but are now only one point ahead of the Hammers, who sit in fourth.

Fifth-placed Chelsea are a further point back. All three of the sides have seven games to play.
