Roy Keane has been getting quite a bit of stick for his beard at the minute, drawing comparisons with Lord of the Rings’ Gandalf.
TalkSport took to the streets of London to ask women what their thoughts were on Roy’s dramatic change in appearance using before and after pictures.
The initial comments range from stating he looks attractive and smart to shifty and grim when clean shaven, but it is when bearded Roy goes under scrutiny that the fun really begins.
When asked what his profession is the unsuspecting members of the public guessed that he was a pub landlord or a farmer. One even joked that he looks like a wizard.
Keane at the moment is publishing his second autobiography ‘The Second Half’ which he has written with Roddy Doyle. It focuses on the managerial segment of Roy’s career, but as shown in the serialisation of the book in some tabloid newspapers, there are still some characteristically scathing remarks towards figures the Corkman came across during his playing career.
