'If It's Football, It's Vital'

Keane, Fergie and Gill Speak

Following his shock departure, Roy Keane has issued the following statement:

'It has been a great honour and privilege for me to play for Manchester United for over 12 years. During my time at the club I have been fortunate to play alongside some of the best players in the game and in front of the best supporters in the world. At all times I have endeavoured to do my best for the management and the team. Whilst it is a sad day for me to leave such a great club and Manager I believe that the time has now come for me to move on. After so many years, I will miss everyone at the club. I send my best wishes for the future to the management, players, staff and supporters of the club.'

Alex Ferguson has paid tribute to the player:

'Roy Keane has been a fantastic servant for Manchester United. The best midfield player in the world of his generation, he is already one of the great figures in our club's illustrious history. Roy has been central to the success of the club in the last 12-and-a-half years and everyone at Old Trafford wishes him well in the rest of his career and beyond.'

Manchester United's chief executive Michael Gill said: 'Roy has been a towering figure at the club for over a decade. His dedication, talent and leadership have been qualities that have marked him out as one of the true greats. On behalf of everyone at the club, we wish him every success in his future career.'

The 34 year old, who has been a fan of Celtic since he was a boy, could well be heading up North, one thing is for sure, he'll always be an Old Trafford legend. They don't make them like him anymore!
