Roy Keane was forced to navigate an awkward, unwanted situation during his post-match punditry after England’s 5-0 thrashing of Albania as they edged closer to World Cup qualification. With the ITV studio positioned at the top of the Wembley stand, a number of England fans appeared to linger behind after the final whistle.
Mark Pougatch, Keane, Jermain Defoe and Ian Wright had been discussing the match for well over 10 minutes when the noise from behind the cameras started to pick up.
Keane was offering his assessment when “Roy, Roy, Ole out” bellowed out from the stands.
The former Manchester United captain appeared to momentarily pause as he tried to avoid the supporters but they carried on.
Another shouted “Ole out, Ole out,” as Keane continued and soldiered on through the unwanted acoustics.
Presenter Pougatch then took over and invited a welcome break to ease the pressure on those on set.
When the programme returned, the fans could no longer be heard in a relief for Keane.
The Irishman, who packs no punches when delivering his punditry, has already said that his old team-mate Ole Gunnar Solskjaer may be better off walking away from the current job at United.
He was not prepared to continue protecting Solskjaer like Gary Neville, who has been scrutinised for failing to call for the manager’s head.

Keane did not hold back in his assessment of his former side’s performance in their 2-0 defeat to Manchester City last weekend.
“I think Ole will be under more pressure than after the Liverpool game,” Keane told Sky Sports. “The way they lost, it’s a derby game.
“Ole was shook up in that interview. It’s tough for a manager when you’ve got beat in a match and he’s getting asked hard questions, but he steps up and he always has – and I’ll give him that.
“Man United are in a bad place, but there’s a way out. Is Ole the man to do it? Huge question marks.

“I hope it is, but it’s more hope than belief.
“Every time United play like that, Ole’s to blame. Every time they win, Ole’s the luckiest man on the planet.
“But he has to look at himself in the mirror and say: ‘I need to do better’.
“He came into United at a difficult time. He’s managing one of the biggest clubs in the world, but if you’ve got bluffers on the bus with you and you’re dependent on [Luke] Shaw and [Aaron] Wan-Bissaka, Ole, you might be better off out of it.”
