Man Utd hero Keane admits being impressed by Garner at Nottingham Forest

Manchester United hero Roy Keane has been impressed by James Garner at Nottingham Forest.

The defensive midfielder, 21, pushed Liverpool all the way in Nottingham Forest's 1-0 FA Cup quarter-final defeat.

And ex-United and Forest midfielder Keane piled praise on Garner ahead of a potential return to Old Trafford this summer.

Speaking on ITV, Keane said: "He's been [in] a really good partnership with [Ryan] Yatesy, they complement each other very well.

"He's technically very good. He likes to dictate the play, sits a little bit deeper than Yates.

"Tough game for him today, this is a great experience for young players coming up against top players like Liverpool.

"It's a great way to learn."
