Manchester United legend Roy Keane has joined Instagram and sent fans into a meltdown after uploading a selfie with his dog and following no other accounts.

Keane captioned the snap "A man’s best friend" and has since amassed almost 400,000 followers.

Reacting on social media, fans were quick to suggest that fellow Sky Sports pundit Micah Richards may have helped persuade Keane to join Instagram.

"Roy Keane defo has a big soft spot for Micah Richards, wouldn’t be surprised if he’s the one who convinced him to get an Instagram", suggested one.

"Roy Keane has finally landed on Instagram, you’ve done an absolute sensational job @MicahRichards let the fun begin", wrote a second.

"I choose to believe that Roy Keane’s Instagram account is merely @MicahRichards playing a prank/conducting an experiment", joked a third.

Keane was famed for his no-nonsense attitude as a player and that has carried over into his punditry, with the Irishman recently tearing into Liverpool and labelling them "bad champions" after they were beaten 4-1 by Manchester City last weekend.

Speaking on Sky Sports, Keane said: "We spoke before the game – they are making a lot of excuses. To me they've been bad champions.

"You can lose a game of football but…I can't figure this group out. Looking at them, even during the week Brighton were comfortable, you can get beaten in a game – there's a way to be beaten. But I don't see that.

"I think maybe they've believe the hype over the last year or two. We spoke about there would be some sort of drop off but they're playing for a big team in Liverpool.

"Almost if they won the league last year and got a big carried away, believe their own hype they're going to beat teams. In my mindset when you've won a league title you're next challenge is 'can we do it again'.
