Man Utd legend Keane blamed for Ipswich player speeding

Manchester United legend Roy Keane has been blamed for a footballer's speeding!

The Sunday Mirror says Ipswich Town ace Damien Delaney, 29, told a court he put his foot down because Keane would fine him ­thousands of pounds if he turned up late for training.

The defender was clocked doing 44mph in a 30mph zone in Ipswich in October.

He said in a letter to South East Suffolk magistrates: "I had an unreasonable boss and was worried I'd be docked two weeks' wages."

He was fined £235 and got four points on his licence after admitting speeding.

Hardman Keane, who has since been sacked as Ipswich Town manager, was reported to have had a bust-up with Delaney last year after he missed several matches.
