Okay we promise. One day, ONE DAY, we’ll get over the fact that Roy Keane is now on Instagram and we’ll stop covering his every post. Alas, that day is not today.

In case you hadn’t heard, Irish football legend Roy Keane joined Instagram on Friday night, much to the surprise of many who thought they’d never see the day. The @officialkeane16 didn’t take long to rack up the numbers, with over 1.1 users of the social media platform following the Corkman since he joined.

The page allows fans to see a softer side of Keano, whether it’s a picture of himself and his canine ‘best friend’, a tongue-in-cheek post about ‘showing some love’ on Valentine’s Day or an adorable snap of his lookalike grandson.

The former Manchester United captain took to the page today to share a pic a young man who shares his granddad’s fierce look, confirming the news will make most of the Irish population feel old – Roy Keane is now a grandfather.

Keane captioned the pic ‘just like his granddad’ and it’s definitely easy to see the resemblance. How long before baby Keano is crunching into tackles at the Aviva Stadium or lifting Premier League trophies for United? Well, if he takes as much inspiration from his grandda as Dermot Kennedy did, he’s bound to be on the right track.
